Rogers State University Public TV debuted the first televised Cherokee language learning course.
The course consists of 48 episodes and each is about 50 minutes long.
"Teaming up with Rogers State University gives us new avenues for teaching the Cherokee language, and that means more and more Cherokees and perhaps even those who are not Cherokee," said Cherokee Nation principal chief Chuck Hoskin Jr.
The courses air Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on RSU Public TV at 1 p.m.
The Cherokee Nation language program will also offer a certificate of completion for those who register for the class on the Cherokee Nation website and complete the associated quizzes with a score of 80% or higher.
