Vocabulary in Native American Languages: Timucua Words

Welcome to our Timucua vocabulary page! Timucua is an extinct language of Florida. It is not known to be related to any other language, but some linguists believe it may be a distant relative of the Arawak languages. We have included twenty basic Timucua words here, to compare with related American Indian languages. You can find more Timucua Indian words in our online picture glossaries. If you'd like to know a word that is not in these wordlists, you can take part in our translation of Native American languages fundraiser, buy a Timucua dictionary, or visit our main Timucua language site for more free resources.

Thanks for your interest in Native American languages!
