Zuni Indian Language (Shiwi, Ashiwi)
The Zuni are Pueblo people, descendants of the ancient Anasazi
civilization, but the Zuni language is unrelated to any other Pueblo language--in fact, it is unrelated to any other known language,
though some linguists have suggested it may be very distantly connected to the
Penutian languages. Zuni is spoken by more than 6000 people in
New Mexico today.
