Here's a discussion about the challenges of developing a new writing system.

My opinion: for fucksake, make your own writing system that actually fits your language.  It is a giant pain in the ass, forever, to borrow someone else's alphabet that doesn't fit.  You're a country, you have a language, make an alphabet you can really use and build some keyboards for it.  You want to use somebody else's keyboards?  Learn English or Russian or Mandarin or whatever.  Don't fuck yourselves over trying to make your language fit on their keyboards.  If the Cherokee can do it, so can other people.
