Indigenous Glossary

At Onkwehón:we Rising it is fully realized that most of non-Native readers may be unaware of the meaning of many, if not all, of the Native words commonly used, much less how to pronounce them. As such, below is a brief list of the terms that are most likely to be seen on this site.

This glossary is a tool designed to be used in conjunction with OR‘s Glossary of Technical Terminology.

Additionally, for most terms the language of origin is also given, and further for some a pronunciation guide is also provided.
