Lowercase Cherokee characters were added in Unicode 8.0. [1, 2, 3] The lowercase is mostly Cyrillic-like in that the characters are simply smaller versions of the capital characters; however, in some syllables you can add subtle ascenders and descenders to reduce visual ambiguity or to avoid an excess of busyness. [1]

The only FOSS font I'm aware of that provides the requested characters is Noto Sans Cherokee (alpha) [4], though that is more of a slab-serif design. A complete Cherokee sans is Gadugi version 1.10 [5], however that is both proprietary and only provided in the latest Windows 10.
