I *know* I read this book, and have it here in front of me. Being
literate in Latin script means they know English, not that they write
Cherokee texts in Latin script.

Burden of proof is on you to show that people write Cherokee texts in
Latin script. There are many, many, many Cherokee-language texts in
Cherokee script. I do not know of any Cherokee-language texts in
Latin script. And bilingual glosses do *not* count. I mean text.
