2024 Sequoyah Book List has been Posted!

 

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
