I hope they don't decide to remove it again after offering it. There's a term for that, but I can't remember what it is.

♫ They took the whole Cherokee nation
Put us in a Google translation
But maybe someday when they've learned
Alta Vista will return
Will Return
WILL RETURN
WILL RETURN

Given the history of the WWII Navajo code-talkers, I'd be surprised not to see that under consideration, unless there's no symbology for it at all.

That's interesting. I've learned some Native American hand signing... but no spoken languages.

I have some Cherokee blood in me... not much though.

What's really funny about the picture is that it almost always leads to someone saying, "That guy's not Indian, he's Italian!" as if that trumps the overall message of the commercial.

"Sorry, you didn't use a real Indian; So fark the environment."

I tried to find a site that would let me translate a headline for this into Cherokee but the sites I went to didn't help too much. babylon.com let me download something but I guess you have to buy the full version to get Cherokee as an option to translate to.

Nice that they got that down. Also no one cares, and anyone that should and would has better things to do for the most part. At least now they have an aspect of there culture preserved. better that Guernica, despite opinions of the rich,

Never met her but:

Granted, she's half-Cherokee/half-Irish, but it would seem that is a very good combination.

I grew up less than 10 miles from the home sequoyah lived and invented the Cherokee language in so im getting a kick.


If your ever driving along I-40 just west of fort smith, Ar, and north of and kinda in between sallisaw, ok and muldrow, ok,

Take a trip north on either hwy 64B or hwy 59 and make either a right or left depending on which road you took and you can visit.

Also the grave of pretty boy Floyd is just down the road.

And this is why Google owns the software biz. The degree of engineering and process excellence necessary to internationalize to Cherokee is simply astounding. They are basically rubbing it into the faces of other orgs that can't get their shiat together enough to translate to Spanish.

Good on you, Google!
