Welcome to our Wyandot vocabulary page! Wyandot, also known as Wendat or Huron, is an Iroquoian language, related to other languages like Mohawk and Cherokee. We have included twenty basic Wyandot words here, enough to provide a simple comparison with related American Indian languages. All the nouns are singular and all the verbs are 3rd person singular ("he or she sings") because many indigenous languages don't have a separate infinitive ("to sing") the way English and French do.
