The literal definition of Azee’ííł’íní is the one that makes medicine.

We’re introducing two words in this Navajo name for doctor: medicine (azee’) and “he makes it’ (íi̛ł’į́).

Ííł’į́ commonly becomes ííł’íní when it’s done over and over again as with one who does it as their occupation. So words like ‘chef,’ and ‘carpenter’ use this to describe their particular occupation in Navajo.
