Welcome to our Mi'kmaq vocabulary page! Mi'kmaq, also known as Micmac, is an Algonquian language, related to other languages like Ojibwe and Blackfoot. We have included twenty basic Micmac 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.
