Efforts to incorporate onödowa’ga:’ into everyday lifestyles is so comforting and amazing! It’s a source of pride for ögwe’öweh peoples in general! Keep it up!!

As we keep learning and become more comfortable with it all, elders provide opportunities to understand concepts better. One commonly used phrase is JA:GÖH which is said to be used for encouragement. Not to get this confused as a “good job” context but more of a push to do well in current endeavors. I am personally working to recognize this concept better myself and that’s the beauty of learning together!

Hao’ nyöh!! Ëswadzagö’!
