Vocabulary in Native American Languages: Kiowa Words

Welcome to our Kiowa vocabulary page! Kiowa is a Kiowa-Tanoan language, related to Pueblo languages like Tewa and Tiwa. We have included twenty basic Kiowa words here, enough to provide a basic 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.

If you need to know a Kiowa word that is not currently on our page, you can take part in our translation of Native American languages fundraiser or visit our main Kiowa language site for more free resources.

Thanks for your interest in Native American languages!
