Cherokee is the First Native American Language on Windows 8

It was announced earlier this week that Cherokee is the first Native American language to be integrated into the new Windows 8 operating system.

Tracy Monteith, North Carolina Cherokee, was an employee at Microsoft when he first asked the company to include Cherokee in its Windows system over twenty years ago. In 2010, Cherokee language technologists met with Monteith and other Microsoft employees to make the request a reality.

Cherokee-speaking community members, college students, and tribal employees all contributed to completion of the project.
