Cherokee Font

The Digohweli Cherokee Unicode font was designed to be an easy-to-read, all-purpose font which can be used for running text in books, magazines, and websites. It is also effective as a display type. Its clean lines, straight forward look, and lack of extravagent flourish make Digohweli a good choice for representing the Cherokee language. The form of the DO syllabic character is the modern “V” shape.

Dikaneisdi (Word List)

This is the English/Cherokee Lexicon or word list. We refrain from the use of the word 'dictionary' since it does not give definitions of words, just the translation. This Lexicon consists of over 7,000 words and will continue to be extended with more word listings.
