 Dinjii
ts’àt tohjàh;
Guutat gohch’ìn;
Guuvat’ànyinohthàn;
Guuts’at gik’ìnoonjìi;
Nijìn t’àngiich’uu aii gwits’at;
Guuvàh gwitr’it t’igoh’ìn.
Aii jidìi gidi’ii kat nàgohtthàih.
. . .
Gwàt aii chit nizii nilii kat,
Aii gwitr’it gwichìilàgùudhat,
Aii gwitr’it ndòo gwinàa’ài’,
Aii dinjii tthak t’ànginuu:
"Nikhwanh than’ t’ìidìlìk"
