“skoden”

skoden is a word which means ‘let’s go then’, it is indigenous slang. A response could be stoodis or kayden. This humour was recognised by the internet and now lots of indigenous communities know of the slang from coast to coast. An Ojibway artist once spray painted the word on the Sudbury water tower on pearl street. The tower inspired memes on the internet, it’s most popularly used for a response to a proposed fight; ‘wanna fight’? ‘skoden’. Funny stuff.
