Cherokee Word Wakens Comatose Soldier!

The code word Gen. Petraeus used, "currahee" is from the old Alati or Lowland dialect, no longer spoken outside of old prayers and songs. in Middle and Overhill dialects, it's ᏊᏩᎯ (quu-wa-hi), and means "stand alone among others"... be an "Army of One" if that's what it takes. And some of you wonder WHY we spend years ...learning our ancient language?
