Vocabulary Words in Native American Languages: Muskogee Creek

Welcome to our Muskogee vocabulary page! Muskogee, also known as Creek, is a Muskogean language, related to other languages like Choctaw and Chickasaw. We have included twenty basic Muskogee 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.

You can find a broader selection of Muskogee Indian words in our online picture glossaries. If you would like to know a word that is not included in any of these wordlists, you can take part in our American Indian translations fundraiser or visit our main Muskogee language site for more free resources.

Thanks for your interest in Native American languages!
