I think I may have been overly assertive here. I know that the Bible
in Cherokee is normally printed in Cher. I know that in Oklahoma, I've
seen Cher used on t-shirts and license plates, but arguably
decoratively. I know the North Carolina Cherokee use Cher primarily as
decoration and that many can only read and write Cherokee in the Latin
script; Cher is considered too hard to learn. I know that John
Kilpatrick's scholarly works were published in Latin transcription
(not transliteration.) I don't know what other books are published in,
nor what the Cherokee Nation uses.
