Sequoyah is probably best known for the famous giant trees named after him and his invention of the Cherokee alphabet. With the help of just his young daughter, he created an alphabet that allowed his people to communicate and record their history. In addition to being an inventor, he was also a silversmith, a blacksmith, a leader, and a farmer. When his family and tribe were forced to move to Oklahoma by the U.S. government, he helped lead his people to form a peaceful and united Cherokee nation.
