Vocabulary in Native American Languages: Haida Words

Welcome to our Haida vocabulary page! Haida is a Northwest Coast Native language which is not closely related to any other language, but many linguists consider it a distant relative of Na-Dene languages like Tlingit and Diné. We have included twenty basic Haida words here, to compare with related American Indian languages. You can find more Haida words in our online picture glossaries. If you'd like to know a word that is not in these wordlists, you can take part in our American Indian translations fundraiser or visit our main Haida language site for more free resources.

Thanks for your interest in Native American languages!
