  • To My Fellow Athabascans.......

    This goes out to Lisa! She had sent me a email but I have been really busy this past two weeks starting a new job, so I was unable to write a reply back to her!

    :D So where ever you are I am sorry for the delay and I hope you are able to read this!

    As per our discussion, yes I agree that the Athabascan dictionary is really hard to read. Did you know that our language is very similar to the Dine! Just in case you weren't aware of that.

    Please feel free to write back when you can it is nice to hear from a fellow Athabascan!

    If there is any other Athabascans on this site we would love to hear from you as well!:37:

    Yes that is true, our Navajo/Dine Language is somewhat similar to the Athabascan language.

      I have a question for you! My grandpa, he is not by blood but I call him that by respect is Navajo, his name is Richard Begay. We are in the colorguard together and he sort of adopted me and put me under his wing. He always jokes around and says I am really Navajo. He says I am one of the Far North People. Have you ever heard of that before? I mean I know we are related, that we were once one nation and then we all split up and some went north and some went south and that is why our languages are similar but have you have ever heard of us refered to in that way before? It is not that I don't believe Grandpa but I was wondering if we were still referred to in that manner?

        Yes, you are correct Indigenous. That is what my grandpa says too, he is related to me by clan but he is like a grandfather grandfather, that is my stepfather's father. But yes, my gramps has told us stories of that and how our tribe was separated along time, like you said, some went far south and some stayed up in the northern area. So, i do find that to be true and I do know that our languages are very similar. As for your grandfather, Richard Begay, there are like hundreds of Begays on our reservation, lol.. my sis is a Begay by marriage :p but yes, he is right on what he has told you about our tribes.

              I know this one is gonna start some fires, so be it. This have been bugging me for a couple of months and now I am bringing it out into the open for everyone to attack, flame, ridicule and possibly even get banned over.

              by nykari
              My friend sent me this email wondering if I had seen it. (which I hadn't) Thought I would let you folks here know about it. With my luck it is probably old news, but such is my luck..haha.

              So what is your opinion?

              In a remote community in shonto, az we had a concert performed by a native performer, but were given a stern lecture on how are students should not listen to our elders, that language is not important, and teachers are .....well an example of the outrage.
