Quileute Indian Language (Quillayute, Hoh)

Quileute is a language isolate (a language unrelated to any other known living language). A second dialect of the same language was once spoken by the Hoh people, but today no one speaks the Hoh dialect. The Quileute language is spoken only by a handful of elders today, but some young people are working to keep their ancestral language alive.
