    Achumawi Language (Achomawi, Pit River Indians)

    Language: Achumawi is a Palaihnihan language of Northern California, most closely related to Atsugewi. Some linguists consider these two languages part of the larger Hokan language family. Achumawi is a highly polysynthetic tone language with very complex verbs and free word order. Only a few dozen elders of the Pit River Indian tribe speak the Achumawi language fluently today, but some Achumawi Indian people are working to revive their language again.
