    The Sequoyah Book Award is a set of three annual awards for books selected by vote of Oklahoma schoolchildren. The Sequoyah Children's Book Award, now voted by children in grades 3 to 5, was inaugurated in [1] (Thus it is the third oldest U.S. state children's choice award[1] after the original Kansas award and Vermont award.). The Sequoyah Book Awards program is presented by the Oklahoma Library Association. It is in honor of the Native American leader Sequoyah who created the Cherokee syllabary. The program encourages the students of Oklahoma to read books of literary quality by providing them the opportunity to vote for their favorite book from the nominated lists.

But slowly and painstakingly, ignoring the hoots 5/5(2).   In Traveller Bird, claiming to be a direct descendant of Sequoyah, published the book Tell Them They Lie: The Sequoyah Myth, which posits a vastly different tradition. According to Bird, Sequoyah was indeed the full-blooded Native American he appeared to be, who all his life opposed the submission and assimilation of his people into white.
