Native American Vocabulary: Bidai Words

Welcome to our Bidai vocabulary page! Bidai is an ancient language of Texas. Few records remain of the language, though some people believe it may have been related to Gulf languages like Atakapa. We have included twenty basic Bidai words here, to compare with related American Indian languages. If you need to know a Bidai word that is not currently on our page, you can take part in our translation fundraiser or visit our main Bidai language site for more free resources.
