Timucua Indian Language (Timucuan)
Timucua is an extinct Amerindian language of Florida whose origins are uncertain. The language shows some similarities to the
Arawakan languages, and linguist Julian Granberry has suggested
the Timucua people may have migrated to Florida from an original Amazonian homeland. After being decimated by European
disease and warfare between the Spanish and British, the surviving Timucua Indians were sent to Cuba, where their language rapidly
disappeared. The last known Timucua Indian died in 1767, making the Timucuans (along with the
Beothuk) one of only a few truly extinct American Indian tribes.
