des dewey

Deesdoi is the Navajo word for extremely warm, or hot.

Temperature-wise, it’s a relative term that is used to speak about the weather, or an area/space. This term is not used to describe things that are hot to the touch, like a cup of hot coffee or a grill.

“Shił deesdoi” (I am hot), is one way that you can say that the air is hot (to you).
