NUNA Project | EXTRADO 1

Project Quechua: NUNA Project 

Extrado in Latin 
means Give Away.

Some years ago I had a powerful desire to want to learn the Hopi | Hopílavayi language. Something deep inside me, somewhere in the labyrinth of my subconscious, there was a thirst to absorb all the Hopi language I could retain in my spirit.

My need to want to immerse myself in learning how to say basic, useful Hopi words most likely stems from my love and admiration of the Kachinas. Absolutely everything about the Kachinas illuminate my mind, heart and spirit. My Kachina dolls, along with Hopi Lightning Stick, never cease to inspire me, wether in my art or life in general.

So now, after all these years, I’m finally getting around to learning useful, basic Hopi words that I can hopefully utilize in my daily life. I’m taking careful steps now: easy, basic words and then, eventually, super-useful phrases. I’m aware of the different dialects and will decide which one to focus on when the time arrives.

Let’s go, I have some words I’d 
like share and give away to you…

Quechua • Hopi • English • Español
