Cherokee Nation creates syllabary keypad

In an ongoing effort to strengthen the use of the Cherokee language,
the Cherokee Nation has developed a unique keypad that allows the user
to more easily type in the Cherokee syllabary instead of using the
Latin alphabet that is standard to modern computer keyboards.

The special keypad is made of thin black silicone, and fits over the
top of a regular computer keyboard.
