Tunica Indian Language
Tunica was a Gulf language spoken in what is now Louisiana.
The Tunicas have shared a reservation with the Biloxi
since the early 1800's; though the two tribes were friends and allies, their languages were entirely unrelated, and being
unable to communicate effectively in their native languages, both tribes shifted to French. The Tunica language, like other
Gulf languages, has not been spoken for generations.
