Searching for Sequoyah is the first documentary feature to chronicle the legendary accomplishments and mysterious death of the famed Cherokee renaissance man, Sequoyah. While much is known about Sequoyah’s many accomplishments, very little is known about the man himself. The greatest mystery is not how he created the Cherokee syllabary, but rather the details of his final journey to Mexico and the circumstances of his death. After removal from their southeast homelands separated some Cherokees as far as Mexico, Sequoyah set out late in life to reunite the Cherokee people in their new capitol, Tahlequah, Indian Territory (now Oklahoma). From Taskigi (Tennessee) to Zaragoza, Mexico, Searching for Sequoyah takes viewers on a journey retracing his final quest and the mystery surrounding his death.
