    Native Languages of the Americas: Attikamekw

    Language: Attikamekw or Tête-de-Boule is an Algonquian language closely related to Cree; indeed, some consider it to be a dialect of Cree. The entire Atikamekw tribe (four to five thousand in total) speaks their native language, but few are literate in it, and the lack of printed materials in Attikamekw has some Indian language advocates concerned about the future of the language. French, rather than English, is the second language of choice among the Attikamekw people. Like Cree, Atikamekw is a polysynthetic language with long, complex verbs.
