    Native Languages of the Kickapoo (Kikapoo, Kikapu)


    Language: Kickapoo is an Algonquian language closely related to Mesquakie-Sauk (some linguists even consider it a dialect of Mesquakie-Sauk). Kickapoo and Mesquakie-Sauk are both polysynthetic languages with complex verb morphology and fairly free word order. Unlike Mesquakie-Sauk, however, Kickapoo is a tone language–the high or low pitch of a vowel can change a Kickapoo word’s meaning.
