Brothertown Indian Language

The Brothertown Nation is a confederation of Algonquian-speaking tribes of Connecticut. The Brothertown Indians migrated west from Connecticut in the early 1800's and resettled in Wisconsin, where their descendants still live today. Tribes represented among the Brothertown Indians included the Mohegan, Pequot, Montauk, Narragansett, and Niantic. Although these languages are no longer spoken natively among the Brothertown Indian people, the tribe is beginning to work together with the Mohegan tribe on reviving the Mohegan language
