Arapaho is a member of a group of languages called the Algonquian languages. It is related to Blackfeet, Cheyenne, GrosVentre, and many languages spoken in the northeastern US and Canada: Cree, Ojibwa, Micmac, Shawnee, Kickapoo and others. Many of the English words borrowed from Indian languages come from these Algonquian languages – canoe, wigwam, moose, wampum, moccasin, etc.
