  • Amazing Grace, Cherokee, with piano-water drum & womens turtle shell shakers

    First is the link which is good to print out. It compares the Cherokee syllabary with the English version. Both versions are of course sung the same, for the same reasons. It is also sung with solo voice and a single bell tolling at officer graveside services.

    Printed versions amazing grace

    This second is what we sang on the Trail of Tears, and it has become our national anthem. This version uses a piano-Cherokee water drum and the womens turle shell leg shakers.

    Amazing Grace, Cherokee

    There is another, solo, no background, of this sung by a Cherokee singer. She clearly pronounces each word and for that reason it is good to use to compare to your own language lessons. Plus it's great.

      Wado!

      Yep, been posting some basic stuff for another officer.com, wanting to make sure they get real stuff and not some new-age catch-all.

      So, please ya'll; bear with my posts for awhile longer. I'll be posting links to Cherokee laws, history, families and lawmen only for little bit.

      WW: Have you noted that the my Cherokee is way different from the First Nations? Good example of how different cultures develope over time.

          I loved the music and wish I could understand the words but I'm a bit old to start learning a new language.

          Spent a few days in Cherokee, NC last June while on vacation. I went to the presentation of Trail of Tears the second night of the 2002 season. It was so pretty and the people were so friendly I wished I could have stayed longer but I had a lot of territory to cover on the way home.

                  Or a really old one.

                  Nope, Methodist hymnals have Spanish, Indian, &, I think, Korean songs & versions of songs. I'll look to copy some of the words & see if they match up.
