Our goal is to make it easier to learn about, preserve, and revive Native American languages by using the Internet. This is a public service on our part. All the information about American Indians and American Indian languages was written by Orrin Lewis, Laura Redish, or our friend Nancy Sherman, who has kindly agreed to let us use them.
We make every possible effort to honor any request from Indian tribes and nations regarding the information we have provided about them, and we will listen carefully to requests from other people as well.
Thank you for your interest in Native American languages. Laura Redish, Director Native American Language Families Actually, Native American languages do not belong to a single Amerindian family, but small ones; they are usually discussed together because of the small numbers of natives speaking most of these languages and how little is known about many of them.
There are around 25 million native speakers of the more than surviving Amerind languages.
The vast majority of these speakers live in Central and South America, where language use is vigorous. In Canada and the United States, only about half a million native speakers of an Amerind tongue remain. Click on a language family to see a linguistic tree of that family and links about the group.
