K’aalógii

Did you get all of yesterday’s new words memorized?

In case you didn’t get enough new Navajo words, we’re giving you today the word k’aalógii.

K’aalógii is the Navajo word for butterfly.

Here’s an interesting insight: k’aalógii was, traditionally, one of the first Navajo constellations, carried and set into the sky before Coyote scattered the rest of the stars by flinging them upwards.
