Natchez Indian Language
Natchez was a Gulf language spoken in what is now Louisiana.
The Natchez tribe was destroyed by the French and the survivors were later forcibly relocated to Oklahoma, where they were absorbed into the
tribes. Their descendents remain among those tribes to this day. Like other Gulf/Tunican languages, the Natchez language has not been
spoken since the early 20th century, but some Natchez people today are working to revive the language.
