Question- why doesn't it accept I am human?
It's because duine is a noun, not an adjective. In English, human is both an adjective and a noun, but this is not the case in Irish.

You could say "I am a human".
Níl duine mé.
Níl is the negative of tá, so Ní duine mé (or Chan duine mé in Ulster).
Go raibh maith agat
out of curiousity, can you elaborate on the Ulster dialect's differences regarding Ní/Chan?
Ní hea, tá sé Edip
