Vocabulary Words in Native American Languages: Yakama Sahaptin
We have included ten 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 Yakama word that is not currently on our page, you can take part in our
translation of Native American languages fundraiser or visit our main
Yakama language site for more free resources.
Thanks for your interest in Native American languages!
