Welcome to our Michif vocabulary page! Michif is an Algonquian mixed language, derived from a mixture of the Cree and French languages. We have included twenty basic Michif 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.
