"Hágoóneeʼ shimasaní"

Translation:Goodbye, maternal grandmother

February 28, 2019



Its okay to think of hágoónee' s see ya or goodbye but its used more as like a "alright (guys im outta here)" thinking of it this way might get the feel of the word forms


I never expected that I knew a word in Navajo before starting (shimasani)! So I used to play a game called Beyond Two Souls on my ps4 and during a chapter the main character went to a Navajo family. The family contained a father, his two sons and his mother. And they always called her shimasani. Makes sense now hahahaha!


Why does it say maternal grandmother and not just Goodbye grandmother
