    I have a heritage of Cherokee, my great grandmother was a full blooded Indian, I’ve decided to look into it including the language because i want to learn about my heritage and maybe even be apart of it, so learning this just makes me look at love and the words “i love you” in a whole new way because to them it isn’t a simple “i love you” it has a lot of meaning behind it and now i know how much my grandmother must’ve loved her family.
