" A work of historical fiction about Sequoyah and the creation of the Cherokee alphabet, from the acclaimed author of Code Talker Thirteen-year-old Uwohali has not seen his father, Sequoyah, for many years. So when Sequoyah returns to the village, Uwohali is eager to reconnect. But Sequoyah's new obsession with making strange markings causes friends and neighbors in their tribe to wonder whether he is crazy, or worse--practicing witchcraft. What they don't know, and what Uwohali discovers, is that Sequoyah is a genius and his strange markings are actually an alphabet representing the sounds of the Cherokee language. The story of one of the most important figures in Native American history is brought to life for middle grade readers. This text includes a note about the historical Sequoyah, the Cherokee syllabary, a glossary of Cherokee words, and suggestions for further reading in the back matter."

This book represents a 6-year collection of student narratives on otherness. The purpose is to determine from adult accounts what forms of otherness were experienced by school-aged children and young adults in school. The narratives were shared orally and students identified common threads and differences. The project culminated in multicultural lessons that equipped aspiring teachers with knowledge and skills to address conditions of prejudice, social alienation, and inequities.
