Women’s Cherokee syllabary watch available in February
TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – The Cherokee Nation Gift Shop will introduce its Cherokee language-faced ladies watch just in time for Valentine’s Day.
According to a Cherokee Nation Businesses press release, the watch uses the written Cherokee language as its face and “is a shining expression of the tribe’s culture.”
“This one-of-a-kind watch is another way we’re working to promote Cherokee culture to a modern audience,” Principal Chief Bill John Baker said. “Continuing to use the Cherokee syllabary is an important part of preserving our history and language.”
The watch will feature a silver body and band as well as a silver dial with the tribe’s logo and seven-pointed star. Around the dial will be the syllabary markers in the Cherokee language.
The watch will sell for $85 and will be available for purchase at the Cherokee Gift Shop Tahlequah, Cherokee Art Gallery Hard Rock and online at CherokeeGiftShop.com
The Gift Shop continues to sell the men’s watch displaying the Cherokee language, but in limited supply. Along with the new watch, the Cherokee Nation continues to increase Cherokee language-based retail items, the release stated.
“This winter, Cherokee Nation introduced hooded sweatshirts featuring the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University logos in the Cherokee language.?The Cherokee Nation Gift Shop features a wide selection of Cherokee and Native American art including authentic baskets, sculptures, paintings, jewelry and more,” the release stated.
