Yáʼátʼééh (hello) dereknak12,

I am so honored to make your acquaintance, and hope you may have patience with me as I seek to learn more about your very esteemed and valuable language and culture of Navajo.

Would you mind indulging me in this instance, and translate the post you have made above into English, so that I might gain some small improvement in understanding.

Humbly and respectful of the great gifts you are sharing, in the service of language learning and with my desire for increasing and sharing understanding.

In gratitude to your service to this community,
Lin da Kanga - from Australia.

Thank you for helping us with Navajo! We hope to learn from you and the course. It is my personal hope that I will be able to support you in carrying on your language by the seed you have planted within me.

Thank you for your very kind words. Not everyone has been very kind or said something positive to me since I decided to post in the forums regarding Navajo.
