Any Native Navajo Speakers on Duolingo?

Many of my friends who speak Navajo are disappointed in the decline of Navajo speakers.

Star Wars was just recently dubbed in Navajo and hopefully many more shows will be dubbed in Navajo.

If anyone speaks Navajo, it would be very nice of you to help Duolingo create a Navajo course.

Thank you for reading this!

Would love to hear about a Navajo course on Duolingo. And Lakota. If any Diné or Lakota people get to read this, please please help or ask around.

Careful now, you don’t want Nazis using it to crack US codes ;)

I'd like to see any Native language on here, Quechua from ES, Navajo Cherokee Choctaw, Inuktitut from EN&DA

I would love to learn Diné Bizaad (Navajo), but you would need native speakers (much like the Irish course) because I don't think a computerized Navajo voice program even exists. I studied a tiny bit when my library had the recorded version of Breakthrough Navajo (which unfortunately, someone lost or stole), but I barely scratched the surface.

I can help you learn Navajo via Skype and/or Telegram if you wish.

i would love it

If I could learn this with Cherokee, that would be so cool! I have many friends interested in Native American lifestyles in the past and now too. I think it would be a great way to save the language and revive the culture a little. Especially after all the assimilation Native Americans have gone through. Quite ironic that I'm writing this on Thanksgiving! Anyways, total yes, would love to see this on Duolingo!

A Navajo course is the number one course I would like to see added to Duolingo. I am part Diné, but there was a disconnect between me and that part of my culture while growing up. My grandma helped raise me and speaks Navajo, but I never learned the language from her. She has also been slowly forgetting her language as she has grown older, so it's hard to learn from her now. I also visited the reservation for the first time a couple years ago, and I was able to meet some of my relatives as well as my great-grandma. She only speaks Navajo, and my grandma was there to translate. However, I was sad since I couldn't communicate with my great-grandma myself. There is so much history behind her words that I may never get to comprehend since she is over 100 years old.

I know Navajo is a dying language as well as the culture as a whole. I think it's important for me to help preserve them and embrace all of my cultures.

I think its a great idea for Duolingo to be used to help save 'dying' languages. Where I'm from, Ojibwe is actually having quite a comeback. Some universities even offer 4 semesters worth of courses. It'd be a great way to preserve and help spread some of our world's linguistic treasures.

Ohh yes, I saw a clip of the Navajo Star Wars some time ago. It was cool xD

I hope that this and other native american languages are added to duolingo.

I don't speak Navajo but I used to know someone. I might possibly be able to get back in contact with him. It would be a long shot though. I myself would like a Navajo course.

Learning Navajo would be amazing

July 15, 2016

I know this discussion is older, but I wonder if anyone from the Diné College on the Navajo reservation has looked at Duolingo.

May 9, 2017

You should invite your Navajo-speaking friends to help out!

September 29, 2013

Will do!

September 29, 2013

Navajo, yes please. I think it's one of the most amazing looking languages.

July 24, 2016

Has my vote!

October 9, 2016

Would love a course in Navajo on duo. I teach English on the Navajo reservation and could get in touch with local speakers to help out... it would also be a major help in schools since Navajo is now offered as a second language in public schools here

@MashaD please do!!!

January 22, 2018

I would love to learn Navajo

June 9, 2017

I would really love to learn Navajo. It is so important to keep these languages alive.

August 24, 2017

As Navajo / Diné is a dying language I find it very important for Duolingo to attempt to add a course to the best of their potential in order to encourage the revitalization and preservation of the language. I'm definitely adding my vote! Wish Duolingo would get on this.

Hello. I am a fluent, native speaker of English and Navajo. I would for sure love to begin work on a course for Navajo if the interest level is there.

July 9, 2018

Please create a Navajo course. We need more North American indigenous language courses on Duolingo.

Please do it would be fantastic!

July 9, 2018

You would want me to?

July 10, 2018

I want you to make the course on Diné Bizaad ... please. From reading the the posts it seems like a new course requires someone to make the lesson plan.

July 10, 2018

Ok. Now how do I go about doing so?

July 10, 2018

I found this ...looks like you have to apply to be a contributor

July 10, 2018

Are you personally interested in learning Navajo? I can teach you via Telegram and via Skype also.

July 10, 2018

I am sure he is: as I am. and probably most of the persons following this conversation. I think it would help a lot of persons if you could help duolingo set up this course. Please!

July 10, 2018

I am interested I would be super super beginner level. I saw there are some Tinycards but the problem is you can’t hear the pronunciation. I think people would like a full on lesson in Duolingo so they can hear the way it should sound. -@Canelita_Chula

Message me on telegram @canelita_chula

jestem za

July 9, 2018

yes please. I want this course

May 1, 2017

I would love this. I think having an education in Native American languages should be more readily available in America. Plus, I think it is a cultural imperative for us to preserve the cultural and linguistic history of the country.

June 5, 2017

Navajo is sooooooooooo beautiful!!

November 5, 2017

hello i will

December 27, 2017

I would love Duolingo to add Navajo to their languages. I’ve been trying to learn for a while but resources are very limited

May 22, 2018

Hell yeah! Sign me up!

August 8, 2016

With the call from Raíces for native language speakers to help the children separated from their parents, I realized that there aren’t a lot of resources out there to learn North American native languages. It would be amazing if they could be brought to duolingo.
