Here’s something cool. Via Frederic Lardinois of TechCrunch, Google has updated its Gmail service to support a new language:

Google just announced that it has added Cherokee as Gmail’s 57th supported language. While Google has continuously expanded its language support for Gmail and its other services, this marks the first time that Google has added a Native American tribal language to its repertoire.

Evidently, despite a diminishing number of Cherokee-speaking people, Google worked with the Tribe in order to help keep the language alive for future generations.
