Get To Know Us.

Osiyo, Voices of the Cherokee People is a groundbreaking series inviting you to discover the rich traditions and compelling modern advancements of the Cherokee people told through a documentary lens. The edutainment show features the people, places, history, language and culture of the Cherokee Nation, the largest federally recognized tribe in the US with more than 460,000 citizens. Cherokee culture comes alive through episodes featuring topics like ceremonial turtle shell shakers, buffalo grass dolls and basket weaving. Come along for adventures as we present the exciting lives of Cherokee people, taking you along with a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter pilot, scuba diving with wounded warriors and traversing the wilderness in search of Cherokee Bigfoot. They are Cherokee stories, told by Cherokee people. 

These are the voices of the Cherokee people.


Sharing the authentic values, beliefs and what it means to be Cherokee preserves our tribe’s traditions and culture and shows the world who we really are, while empowering new generations of Cherokees to keep moving forward. 


Cherokee Nation has its own unique history that, many times, is not taught in schools or in history books. Each historical story presented on OsiyoTV is factual and based on cultural, historic and academic research.


Language is intrinsic to expressing culture. From identity to tradition, learning the Cherokee language is a great way to be involved in the unique culture of our tribe.
