The Tagish Indians are a small Athabaskan
tribe of Northern Canada, relatives of the Kaska
tribe and speakers of a Kaska dialect. The Tagish dialect of Kaska is no longer spoken today. The Tagish
people merged together with their Tlingit
neighbors in the 19th century, and today most Native speakers in the Tagish community speak Tlingit,
not Tagish. Other dialects similar to Tagish are still spoken in the Kaska and Tahtlan First Nations.
