Nooksack Indian Language

Nooksack was a Salishan language of Washington state. Though Nooksack people live on many of the Washington reservations, the language is not spoken there anymore-- the last fluent Nooksack speakers died in the 1970's. However, there are Nooksack elders who remember something of the language and some people are working now to revive their ancestral language again.
