Dah díníilghaazh

The Navajo saying dah díníilghaazh, or bááh dah díníilghaazh, refers to frybread.

Bááh can be a blanket term for baked goods, or for breads. Recall the word we gave for the Milky Way, łees’áán yílzhódí; łees’áán could fall under this category.

Dah díníilghaazh describes the process of creating frybread, specifically. You can imagine the rising of the bááh as it cooks in a grease or oil that is bubbling, as in boiling.
