These vocabulary words are all Christmas themed. (Links provided are to the Cherokee.org Lexicon)

(BTW, the English phoenetic spellings used here are explained here. Probably the biggie is that the letter “v” represents the sound “uh”)

  • Christmas – Da ni s da yo hi hv
  • Peace – Nv wa to hi ya dv
  • Joy – U li he li s di
  • Family – si da ne lv
  • Pine – No tsi
  • Christmas Tree – I couldn’t find any phrase for this but I think that “Danisdayohihv Notsi” (Christmas Pine) would work.
