Is H- a Lewis acid or base? What would be the proton transfer equation for that.

It's a bronsted base because it accepts a proton.

H- would be able to accept a proton, and hence would be a Bronsted base. However, it could also donate electrons so would also be considered a lewis Base

Bronsted base because H- is a proton acceptor
