In Lakota culture the creative forces of menstruation riand the earth, are powerful, and menstruating women are forbidden from participating in ritual activities 'e of all things, because their feminine powers could conflict with the powers of the medicine men.

Most history and lessons are passed down orally from one generation to the next. Here are a few common Taur-ahe phrases and words, for which the translations have been officially confirmed by Blizzard :. The language of the tauren is often harsh and low sounding, which is reflected in the names of their children. The last name of a tauren is usually a family name, handed down through the generations.
If the tauren has performed some act that has made an impression on the elders of his tribe, however, he may choose to take on his own last name to commemorate that act.
This is the list of words created by the in-game language parser for the Taurahe language, and is listed as language number three word range in the Language text file. The parser is used to mask both NPC and players that speak "Taurahe" when encountered by other races. Note: The language algorithm used by the in-game "translator" merely makes the words look like Taur-ahe. It does not actually translate words. Therefore, translated in-game speech isn't true Taur-ahe. The publishing house bought the rights and had the novel translated into German.
Both the publisher and the author hope to contract for an English-language edition in the near future.
