I’ve seen tumblr urls with Mohawk words in it because these people are fans of Assassins Creed.
Quite appropriating my language. If you’re not Mohawk you do NOT get to use my language.
Do you even know what these words mean? I doubt it since your adding letters like “s” to the end of the words to make it plural. That’s not how it works. This isn’t English.
Quit trying to take something that isn’t yours.
Have some respect for a Native language that is still used today.
Please feel free to reblog this and tell others.
No. No, no OP I’m gonna put my foot down. This is not appropriation.
NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO BAR ANYONE FROM USING A LANGUAGE.
I get having respect for a language, I really do, having studied multiple languages myself. And it is important that if you’re using a foreign word you should probably research what it means both literally and what it means to the culture (since meanings can vary from one culture to another). Not being able to learn a language because they’re not of a certain heritage creates barriers and spreads ignorance of different peoples. If anything OP, I think you should encourage people to research more instead of telling them they don’t have the right to a language. It creates more appreciation for a culture.
Language carries culture.
I’m sorry but telling someone they don’t get to use a language because they’re not of a certain heritage is stupid.
