Any Tips for Navajo?
If you're a native speaker or just know a lot, there anything I should learn first or anything to help me along the way? It could be with the language or culture (because I'm very interested in new cultures).
Just keep practicing! The Navajo language can be a tough language, especially since there are so many new letters that are different from the ones in English. I finished my tree (I'm still level one in everything though...) recently, and what helped me was just practicing, even if I didn't feel like it. You can also make flashcards to help you remember the words and letters, or you can make mnemonic devices to help remember the tough phrases/words for you. Good luck!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sUUzC_qjHvQ. HERE daybreakwarrior is actually explaining POSTPOSITION (bitsʼááʼ) to also explain basic grammar and uses an English verb / Navajo verb combination i.e. Navlish. This is a great way for beginners to understand sentence structure incorporating postposition. At 1 minute into the video, daybreakwarrior says, "that's basically how you make simple sentences in the Navajo language."
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_3hnHAwLPo&t. HERE is the best video I've seen on POSTPOSITION and covers subject/object agreement. Navajo language uses POSTPOSITION rather than preposition. I would watch this over and over to understand sentence structure.

As far as learning the language goes, the best guide is "Conversational Navajo: With Workbook" with Workbook Spiral-bound – December, 1995 by Garth A.Wilson (Author).
