Native American Language Queries

This is the catchall page for any question not answered on our FAQ. :-) Please just fill in the box provided with your specific question and we'll answer it as soon as we're able. Please note that we cannot answer your question unless you provide an email address for us to send the response to! Also, please understand that there are several kinds of questions that we simply cannot answer for you, in particular advice on spiritual matters (including giving 'spirit names' to people, which cannot be done over the Internet), dream interpretation, and other non-linguistic Native American issues. We also cannot provide free translations in most Native American languages, since we receive many requests and cannot bother native speakers to spend so much of their time for free. You are welcome to ask of course, and we will certainly reply if one of our volunteers has information that can help you, but except for languages we speak ourselves, we can only guarantee translations for our organization's members and supporters (see our translation fundraiser if that is something you are interested in). And finally, we're happy to listen to genealogical queries, but we very rarely have any useful information to contribute beyond the general suggestions which you can find on Orrin's native genealogy page, so you should probably visit there first.

Thanks for your interest in American Indian languages!

Native American Language Queries

1. Which language is your question referring to?
(Keep in mind that there are more than 100 American Indian languages in the United States alone, so if you don't know which language you're asking about, guessing what you're referring to can be like finding a needle in a haystack. If you don't know which language then specific additional information about where and how you encountered this language will probably be necessary for us to help you.)

2. What is your question?
(The more detailed you are, the more likely that we'll be able to help you.)

3. Email address you want us to send the information to:
Please note this field is necessary. We are not psychics, we can't send you any information unless you tell us where to send it to!
