It seems that he disbelieves my words this way that he spoke .
Tastaakatkuuku’ ti’iriírawaaka .
You (pl) were hearing this that he said .

It was for that reason that I said nothing quickly .
Ráwa kiíci tiiriituutasku .
Now but I sat here questioningly .

Thoughts he made me make .
Hi tiiriirutpakuuraara .
And this is the way he worded it .
Kutuú rakukuhwakuurawu .
It seems that he doubted me .
Kutuú rakukuhwakuhraaruuhuksahu hi rikuraaruuraakita .
It seems that he disbelieved me and that is the reason .
Ríhuksu’ rikuraaruuraarita iratpaaka ríhuksu’     Rikuúsuci’
Only that is the reason when I said only : ` It will be thus
