Gabrielino Counting Worksheet

Like many California Indian languages, Gabrielino does not have many number words (really only five.) It is possible to count to high numbers in Gabrielino, but only by using long compound words combining the words for one through five. The native word for "eight," for example, was wehees watsaa', two fours.
