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