20 Questions: Taboo
« on: March 05, 2010, 01:36:11 am »
What sort of taboos do the Na'vi have?  Anything from simple things like wearing the wrong color (Reserved for certain clan positions?) or not saying a prayer for a hunt.  The 2007 screenplay mentioned that they didn't have a word for lie, etc, does that lead into any taboos there?  What about eating a "push fruit" that you're given?

How about with Eywa, and the forest and such, what sort of taboo are there?

Or if a Na'vi tried to mate without bonding, or mates with someone besides who they are bonded with?

Sawtute ayskxawng längu nìwotx!  Makes me wonder if the Na'vi believe in something like karma.

Fra'uri tìyawnur oe täpivìng nìwotx...
