We are going to start over our language forum. There is one of several phrases that every Klamath and Modoc member should know and be able to say proudly!
ni ewksikni maqlaqs gi!
I am a Klamath Indian!
The Modoc variation of that sentence is virtually the same with the exception of one word. Klamath and Modoc are considered to be dialects of the same language. The two dialects are exceptionally close. The major differences are the inclusion of some Shasta vocabulary in Modoc and a few preferences in pronunciation and verb use.
ni modokni maqlaqs gi!
