    Is anyone here learning Cherokee? I took classes for a year, took a year off, and plan on signing up again. Would anyone like to join me and use this thread for practice?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Ani, I have a question about your name.

    Niawana (nah-ah-wah-nah)
    did not pronounce my name correctly, but instead called me Neawana (nee-ah-wah-nah)

    "i" is pronounced "ee" in Tsalagi...so how? I would have pronounced it the second way as well due to my lessons.


    BTW, I'm Kawenu (Kawoni...I've seen it both ways) Unitsi. Literally translated from English it would be Etsi Kawenu, but only seven wee ones can call me that LOL!

    I was told it was pronounced, nah-ah-wah-nah. I'm curious to know if that is correct now.

    So far I can't find anything on the name. One person online was told it means "little deer" (one person told another, told another, told another...you get the picture), but "little deer" (and even I knew this) is awi usdi.

    I'll keep looking.

    Gigagei Tsula I discovered that this could simply be Tsula also.

    fox (common red) tsula
    fox (black) inali

    So another question, just because I know that I have multiple names that cause a practical identity crisis, especially when someone asks me my name and I start stuttering ("which one do I give them?!" birth, legal, shortened of both, chrismated, nick-Cherokee in English, and Cherokee LOL!)...what do you prefer to be called personally and what do you prefer on here? (the first part is as a friend) Ani, Niawana, Tsula?

    I prefer Ani. That's what everyone calls me on here.

    My name, Neawana, means "clothed in splendor". That much I know after researching my biological family tree. My whole family just calls me Nea.

    Gigagei Tsula means red fox. That is my given NDN name.

    I found The Lord's Prayer in Tsalagi! I've been looking for the Nicene Creed, but can't find a translation of it :( If you know where one is, please post it.

    hmm, I don't know. CF has been going through some updates lately and some buttons disappear and then reappear. Glad to have you here, AyvdauloWaya :)

    I would love to learn to speak Cherokee more fluently.
