How do I pronounce Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki and what does it mean? Technical and accurate pronunciation of the word is perhaps best left to the speakers of the language. But half the fun is in trying to get it right! As with any language, it can be pronounced differently depending on who is speaking. We don't discriminate if it isn't perfect! And it loosely translates into "a place to learn, a place to remember."
