Vocabulary in Native American Languages: Ticuna Words

Welcome to our Ticuna vocabulary page! Ticuna is an indigenous language of Brazil and Colombia. Most linguists consider it a language isolate, not known to be related to any other language. We have included twenty basic Ticuna words here, to compare with other American Indian languages. If you need to know a Ticuna word that is not currently on our page, you can take part in our Indian words fundraiser or visit our main Ticuna language site for more free resources.

Thanks for your interest in Native American languages!
