Yuchi Indian Language (Euchee, Uchi, Yuchee, Tsoyaha)

Yuchi is a language isolate (a language unrelated to any other known language). Some linguists have suggested it might be distantly related to the Siouan languages, but this has not been conclusively confirmed. The Yuchi language is spoken only by a handful of elders today, but some young Yuchis are working to keep their ancestral language alive.
