Zaagidawin miinawa wiidaged – to love and be married.
I noticed that people have been using internet search engines to learn Odawa words for love, so I thought I would post the word love and other things to say when snagging or after you are snagged here.
Awenen giin gidodem? – What is your clan?
___ nindodem. I am ___ clan.
Or you could say:
Migizi ndodem, awenen giin gidodem? – I am Eagle clan, what is your clan?
Why ask your clan first? Well for those of you who do not know, it is a no-no to date within your own clan, sort of like dating your family… even if the tribal affiliation is different and is a cultural no – no.
Also might be good to run through relatives names… just in case your cousins…. lol
