Dana Hedgpeth, The Washington Post Published 1:04 pm PDT, Wednesday, April 10, 2019 At first glance, it looked like a set of black numbers and letters written in English, perhaps with some symbols included. It had gone unnoticed for nearly 200 years in a cave nestled in a wooded hillside overlooking Fort Payne, Alabama - population 14,000, about 60 miles southwest of Chattanooga, Tennessee - and was partially covered by graffiti. But when cave explorers found the inscriptions, they realized the significance. After years of research and analysis, a team of Native American scholars and anthropologists determined the inscriptions are the first evidence of the Cherokee syllabary - the tribe's written system that uses symbols to create words - ever found in a cave.

By Peter Hegarty | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: February 19, 2019 at 12:49 pm | UPDATED: February 20, 2019 at 11:01 am HAYWARD — Just who he was and how he died has been lost to time, just like his way of life has vanished. But a study of his bone fragments, unearthed earlier this month during the ongoing renovation of the Green Shutter Hotel at Main and B streets, showed he could have lived up to 2,000 years ago. His bones also indicate he had grown to manhood and was an Ohlone. The Native Americans who fished and foraged along the shores and in the foothills of the East Bay before Europeans arrived, the coroner’s bureau of the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office determined. “I am not surprised at all,” amateur Hayward historian Frank Goulart said about the discovery of an Ohlone grave in the heart of downtown.

Mr. Trump, responding to a Q. and A. that Ms. Warren posted on Instagram Live a couple of weeks ago, used a line referring to Wounded Knee and Bighorn that mocked Ms. Warren’s claims of Native American heritage.
