Welcome to our Ho-Chunk vocabulary page! Ho-Chunk, also known as Hocak or Winnebago, is a Siouan language, related to other languages like Ioway and Dakota. We have included twenty basic Ho-Chunk 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.
