Sequoias

As I was finishing this commision for a client, I was looking through a dictionary of the Monachi language, spoken by the Native American Mon people that live in the Southern Sierra Nevada (yes, that is quite random, but I love learning about other languages).

Here are some words you should know 😉

cete or pihqo are buttocks

the clitoris is a kwyky

a pretty girl is a syjatyhmy

tyni’ is a master

pata-kwini means naked

hawa means to scold


And here’s an alternate version of the picture ^^
