Sivako
« on: October 10, 2019, 08:52:13 pm »
Sivako- "Rise to the Challenge" Does this phrase actually exist anywhere outside of Mo'ara Valley, Pandora, Disney's Animal Kingdom?

I know about "sa" which is "rise to a challenge"...but sivako?

Just curious.

It's two words:

Siva (a form of the verb sa)
Ko

But for whatever reason Disney just felt like forgetting the space between the words. And so today, "Siva ko" and "Sivako" are both acceptable and equal.

This word, I noticed it only in connection with Mo'ara Valley.

It was never in the film. Sa seems to have been created for that purpose though I can't confirm that. Source is:

Being pretty much *raised* in Disney (lifelong cast family member) I can tell you why they combined it; basically, it looks cooler! Lol! They're dummying it down for people who are only vaguely familiar with the movie, but think "riding those dragon-thingys looks cool!" Lol!!!
