Upper Kuskokwim Language (Kolchan, Goltsan, McGrath)
Upper Kuskokwim is an Athabascan language of Alaska,
very similar to Tanana. There is no "Lower Kuskokwim" language--
"Upper" refers to an area of the Kuskokwim River, not to any peculiarity of the language. Like the
Deg Hit'an, the Upper Kuskokwim people are often referred to
as "Ingalik" by their white neighbors, a term most reject as insulting.
Upper Kuskokwim is a highly endangered language spoken by only a few dozen elders today, but some young people are working to keep
their ancestral language alive.
