Kelutral.org has a new look!
As a part of our goal of bringing the Na'vi language to the next generation of AVATAR fans, we have long wanted to develop consistent brand guidelines. With the help of our new Systems Administrator, we have finally taken the first real steps to do so. This step is one of many along the path to creating the best possible learner experience, and we believe it will bring a breath of fresh air when new fans search for how to learn Na'vi.
When you visit our homepage for the first time, you will notice a brand new light or dark theme based on your device preferences. This was born out of the desire to better meet our learners where they're at, rather than asking them to adapt to us. Learners should be met with flexibility, not be forced to deal with rigid or out of date systems.
The next thing you'll notice is the new colors. Our team has been hard at work devising a set of brand colors that can be used across all of our platforms, on light or dark theme, with colorblind compliance. In the near future, when you visit a Kelutral.org resource (like our Na'vi Language Discord), you will see the same colors, unifying our brand across all platforms. That way, no matter where you're at, you can know with certainty that you are using an official Kelutral resource.
Lastly, you will notice a new, built in blog feed on our homepage. As more and more news about the AVATAR sequels surfaces, we want to be sure that Kelutral.org is a place you can come to find it in a timely manner.
Kelutral is community driven, and we welcome your thoughts on the update. If you have thoughts you would like to share, leave us a comment, Tweet us, or drop by our Discord to let us know. Thanks for joining us in our journey to create the best space to learn Na'vi!
Kaltxì ma olo’ unìltirantokxä! Happy March!
February was an exciting month for the "AVATAR" fandom and for Kelutral.org. Let’s review the highlights!
Community podcast "Eana Mokri" came off of hiatus to release their first episode of the year in early February. The return of the podcast comes on the heels of January’s OmatiCon convention and the release of issue No. 1 of “The Next Shadow” comic, both of which the cast discuss at length.
Support "Eana Mokri" by giving the podcast a listen on your preferred podcasting platform!
Kelutral.org acquired a "Pandora Rising" community as a member of the new Kelutral.org network. This branch of our community will serve to connect players of the video game with other like-minded community members and further our goal of a unified fandom! Join the "Pandora Rising" Discord today: https://discord.gg/teGFg6J3Uk
To celebrate the launch of issue No. 2 of “The Next Shadow”, Kelutral.org is giving away two digital copies of the issue to randomly selected community members. The winners will be chosen on March 3.
Professor Paul Frommer published a new blog post late last night, marking the end of February. While no new vocabulary was introduced, Frommer addressed several questions he had received via email over the past few weeks.
And finally, Kelutral.org finally reached the partnership threshold to apply for partnership with Discord! The application has been submitted, and it may take as many as 30 days for it to be reviewed and approved. We thank everyone who has contributed to us reaching this milestone!
Kelutral Status Update
Recently Kelutral.org expanded our vision for the scope and application of our community to include a broader range of fan interests. With the acquisition of a "Pandora Rising" community in February, our focus is now on negotiating acquisition of and partnership with the teams of both r/AVATAR and the AVATAR Wiki.
The goal is to consolidate our efforts of building thriving "AVATAR" communities into a singular effort, therefore increasing the individual successes of each by virtue of the collective focus and ability. We will ideally have more news for you on this front in the coming weeks.
The Month of March
Looking ahead, anticipate the release of “The Next Shadow” issue No. 3 this week, as well as a coinciding giveaway of the digital issue.
The current "Pandora Rising" season concludes at the end of this month, so make your final push with your Alliance!
Expect an "Eana Mokri" episode in the next two to three weeks, as recording has wrapped for the latest episode. The cast discusses "The Next Shadow" issue No. 2 and the latest in space news.
That’s all for February. A lot to look forward to from around the "AVATAR" community! Be sure to follow our socials for breaking news from the franchise and fanbase as it happens.

So far, 2021 has been an extraordinarily productive year for Kelutral.org. With OmatiCon setting the pace, we are thrilled to unveil the next step in our continued effort to grow and improve the AVATAR community: The Kelutral Network
The AVATAR community is broad and diverse, but also isolated and scattered. With the first sequel now less than two years away, it is our dream to use the time we have remaining to gather the clans under a single banner. With that in mind, we hope to begin to cater to the varying interests and niches in the community beyond simply learning Na'vi. This is why we have launched the Kelutral Network.
Our first partnership brings a thriving Pandora Rising Discord server into the fold. With Pandora Rising representing the most imminent release among the satellite media projects in the works, it is important to us that Kelutral.org have representation for the game and its players. By partnering with the Pandora Discord team to rebrand as "Pandora Rising @ Kelutral.org", we hope to create new opportunities for growth and connection for our network.
As the Na'vi say, siva ko! Let's continue to make 2021 the best year for Kelutral.org yet!
