I've been trying to research this as best I can over the internet, but we all know that translations found online are...iffy at best.

Is there anyone available who could possibly help me translate a few key phrases into Cheyenne?

The big one I'm looking to translate is "The Good Man", used as a name/title.

This Northern Cheyenne web site is rich with the Cheyenne language, beginning with the 14 letters of the Cheyenne alphabet, a pronunciation guide, a course booklet "Let's Talk Cheyenne," and information for ordering accompanying audiotapes. This site also links to many other web sites related to American Indian languages or to more general resources for Native Americans.
