Ojibwe / Lakota word of the week - turn on / turn off light



 The word of the week is more of a phrase or actually two phrases, because I am always telling my kids to turn off the light. A I was researching this I realized there are actually no words for turning off and on the light so I did the best I could. :D

Ojibwe - (turn on light) - waazakonebidoon - waa-zay-coal-knee-bee-doon
               (make dark room ) - ozhitoon dibikate - o- zee-toon dee-bee-kah-tay

Lakota - (to light) - iyo'yanpa - e - yo -yawn - pa
                (to make darkness) - ka'ga oi'okpaza - kahn - gaa o-e  oak-paa-zaa

elf tip of the week - Wisdom

Picture from deviantart by Kimir-Ra

Elf tip #6 - wisdom . This pertains to thinking before you say or do anything. It is easy to say something in anger, but it is hard to take it back. The person may forgive you, but they remember what you said. So take advice from the elves and think before you act. It is better than regret.

Great read!
