Juaneno Language (Acjachemen)
Juaneño is a Uto-Aztecan language of Southern California.
It is so closely related to Luiseno that some linguists consider
the two to be dialects of a single language.
The Juaneno language has not been actively spoken since the 1960's, but a few elders of the tribe still remember something
of the language today.
