  11. I've heard that it means either "stay with me" or "stay with me forever." However since I'm not a Quileute nor do I speak Quileute, I can't verify the accuracy.

  35. I love Jacob!!!!!!!!! He is the sexiest person i have evry laid my eyes on :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. It's "Stay with me forever?" i don't know about that. How reliable is your source? Wikianswers isn't very reliable because anybody can post on Wiki, duh. I thought it was "I love you". Which makes perfect sense actually, so the person who said that previously was not retarted. I know that in the books he doesn't say that till Eclipse (I'm not stupid, and i've read the books three times so don't say i'm confused) but if you actually watched the movie then you would know that in the end Bella clearly says to Jacob "I love you." However she then goes on to say that she loves Edward more and that she's sorry. Yeah i know that didn't happen in New Moon the book but i didn't write the script so don't blame me.

    ReplyDelete
  49. No! Que Quowle Means "Stay with me forever" Not Kwop Kilawtley! So if you all think that, where ever you got it from or who you got it from is the retard! it could mean i love you, Bella doesnt know that. so SHhhhhhh!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'm a Quileute, and what Jacob says to Bella is "Kwop Kilawtley", not "Quo Quowle". Kwop Kilawtley means "Stay with me forever". Take it from me, this is what Jacob says to her and what it means. If you listen closely to the scene, you can clearly hear Kwop Kilawtley, not Quo Quowle.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Kwop Kilawtley IS "stay with me forever", it is not i love you and is not spelt "Que Quowle". and if you watch carefully they do kiss, but their lips only touch for half a second. By the way, the phone in the backround was controled by the director.

    ReplyDelete
  52. It does not actually means "stay with me forever".

    According to old Quillayute or Quileute people it means "come closer (to me)".
    My father of my greatgrandfather was one of this tribe.

    So, please no more arguing the source from EW.com - they don't exactly know what it is.
    The language is almost extinct even my uncle knows very little about this.

    According to him, he said that there is no such sentence or word for "love"... however, Quillayute shows it out instead of saying.

    The language is NOT today anymore, they speaks American English like you guys.(even though it's quite strange accent)
    My family was out of the habitat (of course, and out of the tribe) for almost a century... Even me, don't know much about it.

    Quillayute language is not a language you can say... it's much like growling and snoring... in the other word, they speak by their throat.

    It's true, their beliefs that their ancestors were a werewolf, no matter how unbelieveable it is. I can say that they speak, NO Not speaking - "
    communicate" like a wolf... but mixing with some humanity.

    Incredible? I don't wanna believe that too. But it is.

    P.S. Please don't go chasing them in Washington, leave them alone in peace!

  54. I don't know but I think I kind of believe your story, tangsawanit. Although I cannot prove the authenticity of what you just said, it is believable to me. So, thank you! And you're right, people need to leave these people in peace.

    By the way, is "Kwop kilawtley" really the exact phrase for it?

    ReplyDelete
  55. By the way, is "Kwop kilawtley" really the exact phrase for it?


    Not really. It can be written like that "in English", but it is not exactly right pronunciation.

    The right pronunciation is too difficult to explain using English... really!
    As I said, Quillayute speaks by their throats and communicates using wolf gestures combining with human's. It involves everything, your face expression, your eyes, your movement, your mouth, hands, gestures by turning your head, and something more. However, it is usually not doing all of them together, but mostly 2 or 3 of them, depending.

    I don't know either about how to do gestures for "Kwop kilawtley", but I know the pronunciation.
    To make the closest pronunciation using English alphabets is impossible, but this is the nearest...

    First, "K" is to say "without" the vocal voice of "K", but just "K" in your throat... like something is sticking in your throat and you want to spit it out. Now you know the "K" sound.

    So, "Kwop kilawtley" is pronounced "Kwopf Kil-awt-lkay". It's really hard to type its pronunciation... because it's even harder to say.


    Thank you for believing my story, Shane. Actually, at first, I don't think anybody would trust my true story at all, but I don't care as long as it's the truth in my blood!
    You do... and you understand what I've written. I do appreciate!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I wasn't sure you'll come back to this blog and answer my question so thank you once again. You're right, it's difficult to pronounce these words but I do find your culture very interesting. I just hope that the new "Quillayute" generation will continue the legacy that your rich culture have.

    ReplyDelete
  57. You are welcome... :D
    Actually, that is because I subscribe for this topic, so any new posts are sent to my E-Mail.

    You are very interesting person, and you try to learn something new. That's a very good point of you.

    It is not hopeless for Quillayute to continue our legacy. Elder people are encouraging a new generation to learn things, especially the language. We do hope that our tribe will continue to be even more prosperous soon.

    But, you know what? Answering and discovering (from my father, uncles, and grandparents) these things, just make me want to go back to my tribe again!

    -*- Are you for real?
    I mean, if that is true, would you post us the photo of your tattoo signed by Taylor?

    And, actually, if Taylor did say that, it is still not the true meaning of that.
    Read above, too.

  63. Kwop kilawtley. = Stay with me forever.

  64. You people are idiots! You guys ask for help and then comment back against somebody that actually knows what they`re talking about. When someone tells you they are actually from the tribe and they tell you what the words mean, why to you have to take that step to say "well the internet says different?" I think you guys are just looking for something to argue about. You wanna play know it all when you know nothing. If you read all the internet translations, they do tell you that it is a dying language and they THINK it means stay with me forever or I love you. They don`t say it DOES mean that for sure. Maybe you should just listen to the people who are just trying to help you and stop being so darn stubborn!

    P.S. Thanks for your help tangsawanit! I apologize for all the UNGRATEFUL people on here.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Look guys when people offer you help, why is it so hard to take it? You ask a question of what kwop kilawtley truly means, and instead of thanking the person for an honest answer, you retaliate saying that the internet says something different. The internet is like a paparazzi, only they can`t find any real people to harrass so they blog their insanity online. You should really just say "Thank you" to tangsawanit since he is actually giving you an honest answer of the TRUE meaning. What happened to respect for knowledge?

    ReplyDelete
  66. That was so OK. Thank you so much for defending me.

    Anyway, I do not care that much about people not believing. Well, as long as they haven't said bad things to me.

    As I first said,
    >>"I don't think anybody would trust my true story at all, but I don't care as long as it's the truth in my blood!"<<

    For any concern, I have been living in the country named "Thailand" with my parents and little brother. My grandfather have moved here since he was in love with a Thai girl visiting Seattle.
    However, that was not the reason why we left the tribe. It was a long time ago history - the grandfather of him had moved to live in Seattle, perhaps for doing business, I believe.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I come to believe tangsawanit, as someone who is from a tribe as well. English literal translations are just that. The languages of the native nations are less definative and often truely understood by expression and movement. There is much less possession of objects and emotions you cannot control. Jacob's "kwop kilawtley" is much heavier statement by his expression and actions (kissing her, or rather, trying to). So the phrase means many things at once. i-love-you, stay-with-me-forever, don't-leave. No need to argue with wiki answers and he said she said. Watch the scene again, emotionally what does it say not intellectually.
    I'll admitt I browsed around out of my own curiosity. :P bad habits die hard.

  68. Hi Marie!

    How nice you are!
    Are you still live in the tribe?
    How about the children - new generation?
    Are they eager to learn our Quilayute culture and language?

    I have been there once, but it was when I was only 7 years old... not remember or understand things that much.
    I am now 22 years old... obviously we are like normal human as you; not living for hundreds of years. I suppose you are kidding for this point, though. :)
    We just believe our history, and it influences our culture, language, tradition, etc. That's the way it is.

  71. @ tangsawanit
    I have wondered what "kwop kilawtley" meant since I first heard it in the movie, but only now searching for the meaning. Thank you for explaining in as much detail as possible. We should all know our family history and strive to learn more about the culture our ancestors grew up in.

  73. Tangsawanit,

    Are the Quileutes willing to teach the language to those who aren't native american? I have gone to alot of pow wows in my life, and honestly have never felt more at home, when I was five I was givin the native american name "girl who walks far" I'm not sure what the lady was but since then I've always felt a connection to the native american people and would love to learn the language. I've already learned the history of their tribe and am slowly learning the language they have on the site.

    btw thank you for the translation I have watched that scene over and over tryin to figure out the little hints he might have given that others didn't pick up on

    ReplyDelete
  74. Well, Anonymous,
    Our Quileutes always willing to teach our language, history and traditions to as many people as possible. We do not want our tribe to be forgotten nor our language. You may have known that there is a possibility of extinction as less and less people can fluently speak Quilayute.
    I am so delighted to hear that you learn it from the site; from the sound clips and PDF files, right? :)
    I, myself, is not a fluent speaker though.... well, as my family has not long been in the tribe (told the story in my other posts).

    ReplyDelete
  75. Tangsawanit,
    who should I talk to about learning more from them? and yes from the pdf files and clips... Its so interesting the way they speak =]

    Any information on learning more about them would be awesome (other than the website)and who I should talk to and so fourth would be helpful

    ReplyDelete
  76. Anonymous,
    Well, as far as I know, there are only 5 of fluent speakers in the tribe, and of course they live only there. They are encouraging new generations and have been opening a small school especialy for this to their young learners.
    There is the contact info for you on the site, too. Please call them; I don't know that much about this though.
    Thank you for your great intention! :-)
    More interesting is that, if you read all my posts here, you will find Quilayute language is more than just speaking!
