Cochimi was a Yuman language of Mexico, related to the living languages
Kumeyaay and Cocopa. The Yuman languages are
considered by some linguists to be members of the larger
Hokan language family.
Cochimi was once spoken in Baja California but has not been spoken since the 1800's, and the Cochimi people do not
exist any longer as a distinct people (although their kinfolk the Kumeyaay are sometimes still referred to as "Cochimis" by other Mexicans).
