Our tribe's elders have passed down the Quapaw Language, which is now taught in language classes at the Tribal Museum. These classes are led by Billy Joe Proctor, and we encourage you to check the calendar for upcoming classes.
Quapaw Language DVD
The Speak O-Gah-Pah DVD, which teaches the Quapaw Language and features Ardina Moore, a tribal elder and renowned language teacher, is now available free of cost to all enrolled tribal families.
Here is a list of Quapaw words and sentences translated into English. The audio recordings included in this list were made by Native Quapaw speakers who have since passed away. These individuals grew up speaking Quapaw as their first language and later learned English either as they got older or while attending school. These recordings are intended to supplement the dedicated efforts of our Quapaw Language Program teachers and students.
