"Arapaho-Atsina" is a linguistics term referring to the Arapaho and Gros Ventre languages, which are so closely related to each other that they are usually considered either dialects of a single language or a small subfamily of the Algonquian language group. A third Arapahoan language/dialect, Nawathinehena, is sometimes also included in this grouping.
