Native American Words


Español puertorriqueño & US English

"Each vocabulary page includes twenty basic words for each language, compared to the same words in related Amerindian languages."

Native American languages are divided into Families, and under each family, you will find links to individual language pages.
Entries are in English, French, and the chosen Native American language. Some entries also include Spanish.

Also, there are links to different kinds of word sets (animal words, body parts, colors, numbers, etc.). Some word sets contain pictures with the appropriate Native American word.

At the very bottom of the main page, there is a list of Other Native Languages of the Americas (with links to Hawaiian, Inuktitut, Aleut, Yupik, and Alutiiq words).
