I have created a video which showcases a Na'vi at the beginning of the Na'vi River Journey. This is not the same Na'vi as the Shaman of Songs at the end which you already helped me translate. You can read in the video's description I do not claim any ownership of this video. The video is posted below.



I have used the Na'vi dictionary to make educated guesses of what the Na'vi is saying. However, I am a new speaker, so I am quite sure I am hearing incorrectly or am translating incorrectly. The words below are simply my interpretations. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Irayo in advance!

0:00 Spaw.

0:06 Eywa nawm.

0:13 Tsal reym lun s<ary>op.

0:21 Swok ne-s<ary>op.

0:28 Ma Eywa eo-l<er>eym.

0:36 Tswin vawm.

P.S. The most current versions of translations are displayed in the video. You will have to change the captions to the Nauru language to see the Na'vi words.

Thanks for your help so far! :)

As a new Na'vi speaker, how would you translate this? Would it be "(I want you to) Believe."?
