On Feb. 21, 1828, The Cherokee Phoenix was the first newspaper published by Native Americans in the United States and the first published in a Native American language. Originally produced in New Echota, capital of the Cherokee Nation (present day Georgia), it is now being published in Tahlequah, OK. The paper continued until 1834 and was revived in the 20th century. It is available in both print and Internet version. Read it today at their website.
