Company Profile

In the late 1980's several Cherokee's felt the Cherokee people needed a publication that provided information in our Cherokee language.  So a group of us Cherokees formed the 501(c)3 "The Whitepath Foundation" in 1991.  The development of the Cherokee font by Franklin McLain (PC) & Al Webster (Apple) for use with the personal computers allowed us to print articles, stories & lessons in our Cherokee Syllabary.  Which our centerfold contained in every issue since 1992.  The Cherokee Observer, the first independent Cherokee newspaper was developed to publish these articles, stories & lessons.  http://www.cherokeeobserver.org is still published today . . . this is the 15th year we have provided this.

We're a Federal Tax Exempt 501(c)3 Foundation - All donations are tax deductible to donors.

With your continued support and donations, we will continue in keeping our Cherokee language alive for our future generations.

Franklin McLain Sr., Chairman,
