Origin of the Name Sekoia
“Mr. Sequoyah,” also known by the name George Guess, Guest or Gist, born around 1767, was a Cherokee silversmith and inventor of the Cherokee alphabet.
It seems that the name Sequoyah was derived from the Cherokee word “sikwa” which is a reference to a deformity of his foot that was either a childhood deformity or was the result of a later injury.
He invented an ingenious and original alphabet that allowed the Cherokee language to be written. This was twelve years of work for him. This alphabet, officially adopted by the Cherokee Nation in 1825, is still used today. This is one of the most impressive intellectual undertakings by one man.
Following this, Sequoyah worked on creating a universal alphabet for all the Native American tribes and tried to reunite the Cherokee diaspora. He thus established communication and information sharing for an entire nation.
His name was given to a tree, the sequoia, because of his strength and determination. This dedication was made by Austrian botanist Stephan Ladislaus Endlicher.
Sequoyah demonstrated that a handicap in no way limits ingenuity or the capacity to unite people, establish dialog, and promote discussion. The tree is a symbol for stability, greatness, and durability.
