Welcome to our Cree vocabulary page!
Cree is an Algonquian language,
related to other languages like Ojibwe and Lenape.
We have included twenty basic Cree words here, enough to
provide a simple comparison with related American Indian languages.
All the nouns are singular and all the verbs are 3rd person singular ("he or she sings")
because many indigenous languages don't have a separate infinitive ("to sing")
the way English and French do.
You can find a broader selection of Cree Indian words in our online picture glossaries. If you would like to know a word that is not included in any of these wordlists, you can take part in our Indian translations fundraiser or visit our main Cree language site for more free resources.
Thanks for your interest in Native American languages!
