Susquehannock Indian Language (Conestoga)

Susquehannock was an Iroquoian language of the Northeast Woodlands. The language is extinct and tragically so are the Susquehannock as a tribe; the Susquehannocks were devastated by smallpox, and a lynch mob massacred the survivors in 1763. There are still some people of partial Susquehannock descent among the Iroquois and Lenape tribes today.
