Sahaptin Noun Dictionary (Yakama Dialect)

This dictionary of Yakama Sahaptin nouns was sent to us by Teresa Ana-hoo-ey Kurtzhall with the permission of Virginia Beavert, who put together the 1975 Sahaptin Yakama Dialect Practical Dictionary that these nouns were extracted from. Unfortunately it is now out of print and I do not know where copies of the full dictionary can be obtained (other than rare and used book stores).

Using the Sahaptin Yakama Dialect

The English alphabet and writing system does not follow the alphabetic principal with consistency, example are the words: bough, cough, tough, through, etc., these stand for four different vowel and consonate sounds. This has been avoided with the Sahaptin Yakama Dialect.

There are many dialects within the Sahaptin language, for instance you may hear some people say they speak Yakama, Umatilla or Warm Springs. The Nez Perce, Wasco & Wishram, etc., language is closely related, but not the same dialect.

In the English alphabet there are twenty-six letters for use in the Yakama alphabet, some stand for sounds not found in Yakama & vice-versa. An example would be the letters b, d, f, g, r, and z. Other ways in determining pronunciation are the fact that there are hard and soft sounds within the Yakama dialect, examples would be an apostrophe after the letter(s) ch’ or k’, this brings out a hard pronunciation, this also applies to vowels which have an apostrophe above them. Vowels may have either short or long sounds, as a rule, the second vowel in a word takes on a longer pronunciation. A stress mark is placed above the most prominent or strongest vowel or word, many times changing the meaning, sometimes slightly, sometimes drastically, examples: Pák’inushana = “He saw him”, and Pak’ínushana = “They saw him”. ákak = “Canadian goose”, and akák = “your maternal Uncle”.

There are several ways in which these letters are used on the tongue or throat, (front, middle, back). Some pronunciations are hard, soft, or not heard at all. Examples are the different “k” sounds, some pronounced further back in the rear of the mouth than the English “k”, or from the front, either way, they may be pronounced hard or soft, depending on where they are in the word. Example: k’úsi = “horse”, this word begins with a hard frontal “k” sound, while the word k’ayík = “colt, calf, elk calf ”, begins with a hard back “k” sound. Other “k” like sounds are pronounced with rounded lips, example: Kwíkwt = “whistling”.

There are several “h” like sounds within the Yakama dialect. One is the plain “aitch”, used as the English word “hop”. Other “h” like sounds are not found in the English language, instead the letter “x” has been used to represent them, because they are similar to the sound represented by the “x” in classical Greek and other European languages. The most common “x” sounds are comes from the back, a harsh or rough sound, example: xátxat = “mallard duck”. The front “x” has a smoother, softer sound and is not frequently used in the Yakama dialect, but will be found at the end of words, example: iwíix = “thin”.

One may not catch how to speak the dialect exactly as intended, this is where linguistics teaching comes in to play. Virginia Beavert has completed the new Yakama Practicle Dictionary which includes a CD so you can hear the words as well as read them.

We are VERY proud of our Royalty Program. Each year, seniors in the Wenatchee and Eastmont School Districts have an opportunity to run for Apple Blossom Royalty. After narrowing the group of applicants down to 10, those Candidates compete in the Royalty Selection Pageant in February. Through a rigorous Judging Process (Panel Interview, One-On-One Interview, prepared Speech and Impromptu Question), 5 out-of-town Judges choose a Queen and two Princesses to reign over the Apple Blossom Festival. The Queen receives a $10,000 Scholarship, provided by the Wenatchee Applarians, and each Princess receives a $5,000 Scholarship. The remaining seven Candidates receive $1,000 each. Six local businesses generously donate an additional $4,000 in Scholarships. Over $31,000 is given out in Scholarships on Pageant Night. The Royalty represents the Festival and our Valley as they make over 180 appearances between February and May as well as out-of-town Festivals during the summer.

Cashmere Valley Bank has supported the Apple Blossom Festival for over 25 years and have committed to sponsoring our Pageant through 2023 – we are SO thankful for their support!

1ST ANNUAL ROAD APPLE ROULETTE

SATURDAY, MAY 7 @ 11AM-2PM

The Wenatchee Sunrise Rotary, in conjunction with Anytime Fitness, will be hosting a Road Apple Roulette. Rotarians are currently selling raffle tickets for $5 each. YOU CAN PURCHASE RAFFLE TICKETS @ WENATCHEE SUNRISE ROTARY AND AT THE APPLE BLOSSOM OFFICE!

When the selected group of horses reach our designated area, the section that is hit by the first horse droppings will be deemed the winning section. We will then draw one winner from the “winning” section, and award that person the grand prize of $10,000. We will also award four $500 prizes, one for each of the other four sections.

During the parade, Rotarians that have volunteered to be the Equine Sanitation Team, will follow the horses to ensure the accuracy of the raffle and keep the parade route clean! The proceeds of the event will go to the Rotary Discover Scholars Program that supports and mentors teens that are At risk of not completing their High School education.

RULES OF THE ROAD…

5 Sections will be marked on the Grand Parade route near Memorial Park, between the red crosswalk and Chelan Ave.

When the “to be determined” group of horses reach the sections area they will be observed for the first horse droppings to hit the road.

The section that has the first horse droppings will be declared the Grand Prize eligible section.

Every raffle ticket sold for the “eligible” section will be placed into a receptacle.

One raffle ticket will be drawn for the Grand Prize of $10,000.00 (IRS taxes will be withheld).

A secondary drawing will take place for each of the four losing sections. One raffle ticket will be drawn from each losing section, and each of the four ticket holders will win $500.00.

If no horse droppings land in any of the designated sections, we will randomly draw a number from 1 to 5, and that number will determine the Grand Prize “eligible section”.

Join us for an afternoon honoring our 2022 Apple Citizen of the Year, community leaders, and hearing from our Keynote Speaker, a longtime broadcaster and original Seattle Seahawk, STEVE RAIBLE. We are very excited for Steve to join us!!

A longtime broadcaster and original Seattle Seahawk, Steve Raible has been a fixture in the Pacific Northwest for almost half a century. He was the trusted face and voice of KIRO-7 News for almost thirty years. And after retiring in 2020, the station named its news broadcast facility “The Steve Raible Studio”. Raible continues to be the “Voice of the Seahawks” as the team’s radio play-by-play announcer, a job he’s held since 2004. He filled the role of color analyst for 22 years before that. Raible has called the biggest games in franchise history, including the team’s Super Bowl 48 Championship over the Denver Broncos.

During his time at the CBS affiliate, Raible anchored all the station’s main daily newscasts, hosted Emmy-award winning documentaries, and led the news team’s election coverage and major breaking news stories. He is a multiple Emmy Award winner, including Best Anchor. And for more than two decades was the Voice of KIRO-7’s coverage of Seafair- Seattle’s summer festival including Hydroplane races and the Blue Angels Air Show. Raible entered broadcasting in 1982 following a six year career as a wide receiver for the Seattle Seahawks. A second round draft choice of the expansion franchise in 1976, Raible came to Seattle after graduating from Georgia Tech.

The Louisville, KY. native has been recognized as an original inductee into the Trinity High School Hall of Fame, 2001 NCAA Silver Anniversary Award recipient, was inducted into the Pacific NW Football Hall of Fame in 2005, named a National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Silver Circle Award recipient in 2010, and inducted into the State of Washington Sports Hall of Fame in 2019.

Steve has been married to his bride Sharon since 1981 and together they have helped raise millions of dollars for countless charities in the Northwest.

The Carnival has been a part of this 103-year tradition for over 60 years. “The Funtastic Shows Carnival was originally going to be in the old DOT location off of Wenatchee Avenue but there became some challenging loop holes,” says Darci Christoferson, Festival Administrator. “We contacted the Wenatchee Valley Mall and the Sportsman’s Warehouse management and they made it happen”, Christoferson continues, “Working with Craig Yoder, with the Wenatchee Mall, Jeb Bellsey with Namdar Realty and Chris Welsh with Sportsman’s Warehouse was awesome! They all really understood the importance of keeping the Carnival in our community during Apple Blossom”.

Mayor of East Wenatchee, Jerrilea Crawford says, “East Wenatchee is proud to have one of Apple Blossom’s biggest events in East Wenatchee. We get to celebrate Apple Blossom with the Classy Chassis Parade on May 6th and now we are extra excited to add the Carnival. We love this family tradition and the joy it brings.”
