Tsetsaut Language (Ts'ets'aut)
Tsetsaut was an Athabascan language once spoken in the southern coast of
Alaska and northwest British Columbia. The Tsetsaut people suffered from displacement, warfare and disease in the late 1800's, and though Tsetsaut
descendents still live among the Nisga'a, Tahltan and Kaska tribes, there is no distinct Tsetsaut tribe today, and the language has not been spoken since
