Jeff Edwards

Jeff Edwards, Vian, OK, is an award winning Cherokee Graphic Artist who has worked for the Cherokee Nation for 17 years with the Cherokee Language in varying degrees. He is a language activist working with Education Services Language Technology Group at Cherokee Nation and the primary goal is to work with technology companies like Google, Apple, Microsoft and Facebook to have the Cherokee language represented on their phones, tablets and operating systems.

He attended Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence, KS and graduated from Northeastern State University in Tahlequah with a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design. His artwork is almost exclusively Cherokee themed, always trying to display the Cherokee Syllabary to some degree, in an attempt to promote the Cherokee language and likes using old cultural concepts but expressing them with modern electronic tools.
