Expectations of a Cherokee (part 2/3)
These are called "Cherokee Cultural behaviors" and are expected to be followed by most cherokees, altough they are expectations present in most socities. I will write it out in cherokee then in english if you are a learner. Here it goes. Please note that this is not an exact translation, but it's english equivalent, otherwise it would sound a bit odd.

For those who can't read cherokee, would you like me to put them in english letters as well, just to see what they sound like?
Cherokee is very diffirent from english ;) I might later, don't have a lot of time on my hands at the moment, plus im also putting these into english letters. But if I get the time, sure thing ;) Plus I was also talking about word order.
Haha, that is cool! Mabye you could share your progress with me one day :D
If there are any Native/Fluent cherokee speakers here, please let me know, I think I made a minor mistake in #10. My cherokee is not perfect :P
