KelutralHometree (ˈkɛl.ut.ɾal) means Hometree in Na'vi, and that's exactly what we want Kelutral.org to be: a living, growing home for the James Cameron's AVATAR community, where fans of all stripes can make lifelong friends!
History of the Na'vi Language and James Cameron's AVATAR
Lì'fyayä leNa'vi 'okvur sì Unìltirantokxä
It wasn't long before the project caught the attention of USC Professor Paul Frommer, the linguist that James Cameron had hired to create the language for AVATAR. Frommer was highly enthusiastic about the efforts of fans, and began to work with them to fill in the gaps in the gathered knowledge. Together with an enthusiast named Payoang, the first organization was founded to promote learning and teaching the Na'vi language: LearnNa'vi.org
Over the next 10 years, the LearnNa'vi.org community would establish themselves as the foremost resource for Na'vi language learners, maintaining dictionaries, grammar compendiums and expansion projects for the language in conjunction with Paul Frommer and Lightstorm Entertainment. However, as all things do, gradually the community started to dwindle in size as more and more fans drifted away from the franchise in the doldrums between releases.
In 2020, the core remaining group of Na'vi language enthusiasts picked up the baton. Recognizing the turn of the tide in interest in the James Cameron's AVATAR franchise and the opportunity to breathe fresh life into the Na'vi language community and AVATAR fanbase, they founded Kelutral.org with the intent of bringing the communal interface and experience into the modern era in preparation for the first AVATAR sequel in 2022.
Today, Kelutral.org continues to work closely with Paul Frommer and Lightstorm Entertainment to develop the language and provide a home for the James Cameron's AVATAR fanbase on the internet.
