Osage for Navajo is a way to write Navajo with the Osage alphabet created by Marc Harder. Some letters have been repurposed to fit Navajo's phonology, though most are based on their original pronunciation.

The Osage alphabet was created in 2006 to write Osage, a Siouan language spoken in Oklahoma in the USA.
