The Navajo word tó means water in English.
You’ll find tó in words that range from places, to clans, and to liquids in general. For example, tó becomes atoo’ to refer to mutton stew, or sometimes other soups. Tó also becomes bitoo’ (“its juice/water”) when speaking about orange or apple juice.
Tódích’íí’nii is one of the four original clans of the Navajo and it refers to the Bitterwater People.
