Prospective students must pass an admission test to be eligible for admission.
Applicants are required to know how to translate the following list of forty words, from English-to-Kanyen’kéha and Kanyen’kéha-to-English. The test is oral, not written. Applicants must receive a score of 100% to pass the test and be eligible for admission. They must answer all questions correctly and immediately.
A hard copy of the list can be downloaded here.
You will note that several words on the above list have more than one meaning:
Note that the list has three sets of words with different coloured prefixes. The words with red prefixes express the relationship of people-to-objects (someone-to-something). The words with blue prefixes express the relationship of objects-to-people (something-to-someone). And the words with the purple prefixes express the relationship from person-to-person (someone-to-someone).
Make a set of flashcards using these words, with English on one side and Kanyen’keha on the other. Say the Kanyen’keha words aloud as you write them out.
Study and learn the first five red-prefix words first (singles). Then study and learn the second five red-prefix words next (duals). And then study and learn the last five red-prefix words (plurals). Do the same for the blue-prefix and purple-prefix words.
