Pentlatch Language (Qualicum)
Pentlatch was a Salishan language of British Columbia,
closely related to Comox. Though there are still people of Pentlatch
descent today, the Pentlatch language was last spoken in the 1940's, and few records of it remain. Most Pentlatch people today
are living together with the Kwakwakawakw in Qualicum First Nation.
