Welcome to our Nootka vocabulary page! Nootka, also known as Nuu-Chah-Nulth, is a Wakashan language, related to other languages like Makah and Kwakiutl. We have included twenty basic Nootka 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.
