Vocabulary in Native American Languages: Quiripi Words

The Quiripi language has long been extinct. These vocabulary words come from a religious text recorded by the Reverend Abraham Pierson in 1658. The spelling of this text is erratic and there is no pronunciation guide, so these vocabulary words are probably best taken as approximations. If you would like to know a Quiripi word that is not currently on our page, you can take part in our Native American translation fundraiser or visit our main Quiripi language site for more free resources.

Thanks for your interest in Native American languages!
