Quick translation help

Hello,

How would one say "leader who guides"in NU?
I would think it would need to be rendered something like "leader - the one who guides".

SU has nikanixink for leader. Not sure if NU would use a form of nigani or takachsin.

Not sure about the "one who guides" part. I only know the word for "guide", not the descriptive noun describing "one who guides", unless it would be the same word (?).

Thanks for any assistance!

SU:  nikanixink kikinhet.  Both words are participles.  NU:  niganihillat kichkinet.  You definitely don't want to use takachsin.  That means "lead," the metal.  (lit., 'soft stone').
