Cherokee language appears on university team caps



The Cherokee language now appears on baseball caps for the University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University and Northeastern State University.

The Cherokee script appears on the front of the cap and the English name of the team appears on the back. Each cap comes in the school's respective colors.

"Cherokees are traditionally huge sports fans, so putting our favorite team names in Cherokee on baseball caps is a win-win," said Principal Chief Chad Smith.

The caps are on sale at tribal gift shops and tobacco stores.
