Nesika Papa /  Our Father / Pater Noster

Nesika Papa klaxta mitlite kopa Sahalee,
kloshe kopa nesika tumtum mika nem.
Nesika hiyu tikeh chahco mika illahee;
Mamook mika kloshe tumtum

Potlatch konaway nesika mesahchee,
kahkwa nesika mamook kopa klaska

Wake lolo nesika kopa peshak pee marsh
siah kopa nesika knoway mesahchee.
Kloshe kahkwa.

Throw far away from us all evil

Kloshe kahkwa.
