    My mother and grand mother, her cousins,my aunts and uncles used to say buzhu to say hello in the ottawa language, here in the last twenty years or so, I learned another way, they say aanii.

    How!

    Thank you my great new and even friendly natives. I love you guys so much, vote for me–twice if you can!

    No hard feelings, right? After all, it was just a little white lie–one of those would never hurt anyone!
