Welcome to the Wakashan Wiki, a website dedicated to connecting members of native communities, researchers, and the public to information having to do with the Wakashan ("wuh KAH shun" or "wuh KASH un") languages:
North Wakashan Languages
- Haisla-Henaksiala (Kitimat, Kitimaat)
- Heiltsuk (Bella Bella, Heiltsuq)
- Wuik'ala (Oowekyala, Oowekeeno)
- Kwak'wala (Kwakiutl)
South Wakashan Languages
The Wakashan family of languages is spoken in western British Columbia, Canada (including Vancouver Island), and Neah Bay, Washington in the United States. Because of similarities of these languages, it is believed that all Wakashan languages are descended from a common ancestor, proto-Wakashan, and so they are referred to as a language family.
Although assistance in editing these pages is greatly appreciated, due to vandalism, automated registration has been deactivated. the Wakashan Wiki can no longer be edited by the general public. We are currently working on a contact method.
This wiki was created based on the Wakashan Linguistics Page.
