Miccosukee Indian Language (Mikasuki, Hitchiti)
Miccosukee is a Muskogean language of the American Southeast.
It is still spoken today by about 500 Seminole people in Florida, one of two languages spoken by the
Seminoles (the other is
Creek). Miccosukee is very closely related to another
Muskogean language, Hitchiti, and some linguists consider them
dialects of a single Hitchiti-Mikasuki language.
Like other Muskogean languages, Mikasuki is a language with morphologically complex verbs and SOV word order.
