Gmail Adds Cherokee to Supported Languages

Google recently announced that it has added Cherokee as one of Gmail’s fifty-seven supported languages. This is the first time Google has included a Native American language in its extensive reserve.

According to TechCrunch, Google conducted a survey in 2002 and found that no one under forty spoke conversational Cherokee. As a result of the survey, the Cherokee Nation sought technological means to encourage the younger generation to learn their language.

The Cherokee Nation worked with Google to make the inclusion of the language possible.
