I have a question. My son and I are learning to speak tsalagi and we were taught the eastern band way to say hello is Siyu. Is this correct?

Hello = Osiyo O-See-O
Thank you = Sgi Ski

We have been watching utube videos. There's a man that goes by the name chief moon wolf and he's been teaching how to speak eastern band Cherokee and he said Siyu was how you said hello.

We say Osiyo

Sgi David.
