Vocabulary Words in Native American Languages: Sioux
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.
If you need to know a Sioux word that is not currently on our page, you can take part in our
Indian translations fundraiser, buy a Dakota Sioux
dictionary, or visit our main
Sioux language site for more free resources.
