Cherokee Google Interface

Cherokee made big news as Google launched an interface entirely in the Cherokee syllabary, which is one of several non-English language interfaces including Hawaiian. Since Cherokee people google a lot just like anyone else, it’s easy to wean themselves off classic google phrases and on to Cherokee equivalents, plus it offers a syllabary keyboard in order to search for content in Cherokee (much easier than copying and pasting unicode). The Cherokee have a higher population and more speakers than most Native tribes and languages, but only about 5% of speakers can read and write Cherokee fluently, primarily Christian priests (to read the Cherokee Bible) and Indian medicine practitioners (to read Cherokee formulas).
