Cherokee-language baseball caps

Cap sales to benefit Cherokee programsIn efforts to preserve and promote its language, the Cherokee Nation has created baseball caps depicting the logos of three Oklahoma universities written in Cherokee.

Fans of the University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University or Northeastern State University can buy the caps for $14.99 each at several Cherokee gift shops statewide. By Monday, about half the 720 caps ordered had been sold.

About 70 cents of each dollar will go back to the nation for education, job creation, health and social programs, such as Cherokee language immersion classes.
