Cherokee Secretary of State Speaks About Commemorative Sequoyah Coin

12/12/2016

Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. issued a statement Friday regarding the U.S. Mint commemorating Sequoyah on the 2017 Native American $1 coin:

Having Sequoyah grace the U.S. dollar coin is a wonderful national recognition for our tribe’s renowned statesmen and creator of the Cherokee syllabary. Last year, the flip side of the Sacajawea dollar was a tribute to American Indian code talkers, and this year builds on the foundation of honoring the Indian people who have played a critical role in shaping our great country. From a Cherokee perspective, the look and message behind the United States’ currency has improved two-fold in 2016, with the emergence of the Cherokee language and Sequoyah’s image on the dollar coin that will be going into circulation in the coming year, coupled with the announced plans to remove Andrew Jackson from the face of the $20 bill. It is good to see the United States Treasury take Native history in America into account for its monetary creations.”
