A long time ago there lived a Cherokee boy named Sequoyah. His father was a white man named Nathaniel Gist. Nathaniel left the Cherokees soon after Sequoyah was born. He was not as tall as his friends, and he was lame. Yet this small boy grew. He had to go back to his own people. But Sequoyah and his mother stayed with the tribe. The white people used paper for writing. Sequoyah thought that paper looked like large white leaves. The leaves : were covered with many black marks. Sequoyah watched the people as they looked at their leaves.
