Sequoyah Book Awards Logo
With this award, Oklahoma honors the Native American leader Sequoyah, for his unique achievement in creating the Cherokee syllabary. Sequoyah chose eighty-five symbols to represent all spoken sounds of the Cherokee language. In so doing, he created a way to preserve his people's language and culture.

The Sequoyah Book Award is a set of three annual awards for books selected by a vote of Oklahoma students in elementary, middle, and high schools
