Vocabulary Words in Native American Languages: Northern Paiute
We have included twenty basic words, enough to give you a feeling for each language. All the nouns are singular and all
the verbs are 3rd person singular ("he or she sings") because many Native American languages don't have a separate infinitive ("to sing")
the way English and French do.
You can find a broader selection of Northern Paiute 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
Native American words fundraiser or visit our main
Northern Paiute language site for more free resources.
Thanks for your interest in Native American languages!
