Welcome to our Wintu vocabulary page! Wintu, also known as Wintun, is an indigenous language of California. Some linguists consider it a relative of the Penutian language family, related to other languages like Chinook and Maidu. We have included twenty basic Wintu words here, to compare with related American Indian languages. If you need to know a Wintu word that is not currently on our page, you can take part in our translation of Native American languages fundraiser or visit our main Wintu language site for more free resources.
