Senjecas has a reflexive pronoun 'potyus.'
mus potyum per kusa = I kissed myself.
sus potyum per kusa = he kissed himself.
'potyus' is also the intensive pronoun when used attributively.
potyu mus anthom per kusa = I myself kissed the flower.
The reciprocal pronoun is 'anyanyuso.' It is found only in the
genitive and accusative cases.
sues anyanyun per kusa = they kissed each other.
