Welcome to the Omaha Ponca dictionary

Welcome to the Omaha and Ponca Digital Dictionary public access site. Here you can explore the Omaha and Ponca languages. The primary data come from the unpublished materials collected by James Owen Dorsey (1848-1895) and housed in the National Anthropological Archives at the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C. You are able to search on Omaha and English terms. This is a resource that will continue to grow with regular updates.
