The Tuscarora Language

The Tuscarora Center of North Carolina would like to offer our deepest gratitude to Mrs. Margaret Johnson, widow of the late F. Roy Johnson, for allowing us to make this "dictionary" available to all who are interested. Mr. Johnson deserves his own special thanks for caring enough so many years ago to create and publish this book, as well as writing two other priceless resources on the history and culture of the Tuscarora in North Carolina, The Tuscaroras, Volumes 1 & 2.

The following is the entire language section of Chief Elton Greene's book on the Tuscarora Language. I have reprinted it here in it's entirety.

I do apologize for not being able to include all of the correct phonological symbols for pronunciation, but it would take too long to key in the macro-codes for all of the different types of letters. The main things that are missed are the "~" over some "R"s- which would represent a trilled "R" and also certain - (dashes) over the "Oo" combinations.

The _____________ breaks represent a break in pages. The post starts with the cover:

INTRODUCTION

The following is the Tuscarora Indian Language rendered into the English equivalent.

This vocabulary was taken by myself, Chief Elton Green, Sachem of the Sand Turtle Clan, born 1889, with the help of my granddaughter, Mrs. Laura June Osborn, who assisted in rendering a more perfect English equivalent.

I have used the English alphabet with natural words-so far as the Tuscarora language sounds-which may be used and understood by third and fourth grade pupils.Yet in many instances it is impossible to give the sound precisely in English. For instance, the word for “tomorrow”. “Eh-ro’r-heh”, the first “Eh” is from the throat while the “r” that follows has a slight tongue roll.

A tape recording of this work has been made and deposited with the Bureau of American Ethnology, The Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., for benefit of Tuscarora scholars. Copies have been made for my use and by Johnson Publishing Company of Murfreesboro, North Carolina.

This collection contains just a few words of the Tuscarora language, yet these are among the more common and useful ones.
