Welcome to our Navajo vocabulary page!
Navajo, also known as Dine, is an Athabaskan language,
related to other languages like Apache and Gwich'in.
We have included twenty basic Navajo 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 Navajo 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 Indian translations fundraiser or visit our main Navajo language site for more free resources.
Thanks for your interest in Native American languages!
