    Chumash Indian Languages


    The Chumash languages are considered by some linguists to be part of the Hokan family of languages, possibly related most closely to Salinan. There were once at least three distinct Chumashan languages–Northern Chumash (Obispeño), Island Chumash (Ysleño or Cruzeño), and Central Chumash, (with four dialects, Barbareño, Ineseño, Purisimeño, and Ventureño, some of which may also have been distinct languages of their own).
