You can check "Walk in your soul; love incantations of the Oklahoma
Cherokees", by Jack Kilpatrick. A Google search reveals that the word
ᏣᎳᎩ appears once in running Cherokee text, which seems unlikely if
there's any serious amount of Cherokee text in Cher online.  A
websearch reveals a lot of pictures of text in Cher followed by Latin
transliteration. From my searching, I'd expect that tagging a random
block of Cherokee computer text as Latn is more likely to be correct
than tagging it as Cher.
