The Navajo language is the most complex language, I think, in the world. […] You have more verbs in Navajo than we have in the entire English language. And so the concepts aren’t translatable because they’re more complex. So, when I think about that, I think about how the mind works with that much more language in it. When you have different concepts that you cannot translate, you can’t possibly … that’s why it’s so hard to get the Western thought system and indigenous thought systems to meet, because the way of thought is so different.
