Week 1: Speaking Every Day

We must use the language, speak the language, all day, every day.

You now have your basic word list:

1. Boozhoo - Hi

2. Aaniin - Hi or How?

3. Eya' - Yes

4. Gaawiin - No

5. Ahaw- Ok

6. Howa - Good job

7. Mii gwech - Thanks

8. Daga – Please

Have you been using these words? When you answer the phone, are you saying "Boozhoo?" When your family member gets you something to eat, or a drink, or does something for you, are you saying "mii gwech?" You should be. We have to use it to help us remember it..

Mii gwech
