Are you interested in trying a new program to learn the Cherokee Language?
Families are encouraged to apply for a grant to participate (absolutely free) in an online program that will use technologies such as Skype and/or Google talk, or other technologies, websites and videos to teach the Cherokee language in the Big Cove Dialect.
The program is free, however, you must provide your own internet connection and working phone of your own is also required. (cell phone or land line either one).
You will also be required to have a Gmail account for each family member participating but minors are allowed to share or to use an adult family member's account if you prefer.
If you are interested in obtaining an application for one of the 10 positions that are now open, please contact Walosi or Tsasuyeda at 888.743.7775 This is an automated call service so be sure to listen to the automated instructions for leaving a message, and allow 72 hours for a response/follow up.
Clearly state your name, your phone number, and the best time of day/week to call you back.
The application is a short one, but the process of selection may take several weeks once it is received by us.
You will be notified only if you are approved for participation.
To be eligible for the grant, applying families must be a "unit" comprised of at least 2 adults (parents, guardians, grandparents, etc) and at least 2 school aged children.
This course, when completed, can count in some instances, as a foreign language credit for those who are actively home educating their children.
Just remember to indicate your interest in information on that on the application when you submit it.
