Welcome to our Maidu vocabulary page! The Maidu language and its closely related dialects, Nisenan and Konkow, are indigenous languages of California. Some linguists associate them with the Penutian language family. We have included twenty basic Maidu words here, to compare with related American Indian languages. If you need to know a Nisenan word that is not currently on our page, you can take part in our translation of Native American languages fundraiser or visit our main Maidu language site for more free resources.
