Andy sends a complete 20- volunie set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Pat Hodge, age 11, of Princeton, Illinois, for his question: What language did the Ameri- can Indians speak? Columbus came from the Old World where the people spoke dozens of different languages. He found that the original Am- ericans of the Caribbean spoke at least three different lan- guages. Later settlers had to cope witlr hundreds of New World dialects. After all, the vast American continents were populated many cultural ;roups. And, like people every- where, these groups enjoyed Jieir own languages and ens- tarns. The Amerindians of North America spoke about 600 differ- ent dialects. Some could uader- itand neighboring dialects. Oth- ers didn't know what neighbors torn a few miles away were saying. Sign languages were in- vented to cope with this prob- em and gestures were used in- stead of ivords. This was, of course, a very limited kind of communication. So were the so- called trade languages, the iketchy bargaining terms that raders and trappers intro- duced as they traveled from me region to another. Thoughtful conversation, the only sensible kind of communi- cation, was an immense prob- em to the while settlers, and also among the Amerindian roups themselves. For cxam- in 1805 the dedicated Lews ami Clark expedition met the Flathead Tribe of the north- west. To establish comnninica- ion, it was necessary lo trans- ate and interpret through six thcr languages- and dialects. Language ixncris have since jcklwl (lie baffling job of and relating this multitude of tongues, bill the South American part of the pro- is still unfinished.

The similarities in a major group may be ap- parent only to an expert. On a practical level, villagers speak ing one dialect may be unable to understand other dialects o tKe same language family. Ex pert interpretation was harder because none of the Hew Worlders had invented writing systems. One of the largest superfam- ilies is Souan, with various dialects used by the Sioux and the Crow, the Iowa and other groups of the Great Flaws. The Iroquois and other groups o! eastern forests speak various dialects of the Algonquin lan- guage. Along the western pleateau the Pueblo, the Hopi and other village groups speak local dialects of Aztec, while the Navajo and the Apache speak dialects of the Nadene language. None of these tongues is relrted to the Penu- tian language of the Chinooks and other groups of the far northwest, or lo tha language of the Eskimos. Some of the Amerindians moved from their original homes from Pennsylvania to Wyoming, from the plains and the eastern forests to Okla- homa. But most of them still speak and cherish the la of their ancestors. They have studied and worked to invent writing "J bring their ancestral languages up to date.
