Native American Indian Encyclopedia of Terms
This is an index of all the Native American proper names and cultural terms
used on our website. Clicking on a term will bring up its definition and links
to any related information we have available on our website.
This list includes tribal names, spelling variants, names from mythology,
band and clan names, place names, and Native American cultural terms. It does NOT
include vocabulary words from Native American languages-- we have more than 100,000
vocabulary words on our website at this time, which is far too many to list on a single page!
If you want to search our website for a specific vocabulary word, please use the Google box
We appreciate your patience as we work to complete this section. Even without including general
vocabulary words, there are a lot of Native words and terms on our website to be added.
Wado, miigwech, pilamaya ye, and thanks to all!
