    Native Languages of the Menominee


    Language: The Algonquian language Menominee (or Menomini) is today spoken by only a few tribal elders in Wisconsin, though some younger Menominees hope to revive the language. Menominee is a polysynthetic language with complex verbs and fairly free word order.
