In English, there are the 5 Ws: who, what, when, where, and why. The Navajo word háí is the “who” word, and in the instance that the object is not a person, it also means “which.”
Earlier, we gave you the “what” word (/word/ha-at-ii/) – or há’át’íí / ha’íí. Notice how similar they are to each other.
A few useful phrases:
- Háidíígíí - Which one
- Háí bi- - Whose (Díísh háí bichidí? Whose vehicle is this?)
- Háídíshą’ or Háidísh - Which (Háidísh nínízin? Which do you want?)
- Háíshą’ or Háísh- Who (Háíshą’ ánít’į́? Who are you?)
