Welcome to our Mohawk vocabulary page! Mohawk, also known as Kanien'keha, is an Iroquoian language, related to other languages like Seneca and Oneida. We have included twenty basic Mohawk 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.
