Let's Go Speak Navajo!

The purpose of this site is to provide situational Navajo phrases for daily use. It is slowly being updated.

Examples on this website will be in Navlish (Navajo and English mixed together). Though it would be nice to have the examples entirely in Navajo, the examples are in Navlish for several reasons:

  • With exception to the elderly, no one speaks entirely in Navajo anymore. If you truly want to sound like a local, or to sound jighá̜á̜n, you have to word things mixing Navajo and English.

  • It would get too confusing and too overwhelming to have the examples entirely in Navajo.

  • This site is meant to be a starting block. For Non-Navajos and for Navajos that Navajo is not their first language, this site will stimulate questions.

  • Navlish hopefully will help the learner pick up the language faster. Seeing familar nouns in English will show where the nouns are located in a Navajo sentence.

Not all the details of the phrases are given and an understanding of elementary Navajo (i.e. colors, numbers, etc.) is expected in terms of knowing how to use the phrases properly.

For portions of this page, Navajo Font is required! You can download Navajo font for free by clicking here!
