North Carrier

"North Carrier" is an alternate name for the Babine-Wet'suwet'en language of Canada. The language was called this name because it is most closely related to the Carrier language, and the Babine and Wetsuweten tribes are located to the north of the Carriers. Some Babine and Wetsuweten people still refer to their language as "Carrier" today.
