California Indigenous Language Families

Algic

The Algic language family includes Wiyot, Yurok, and Algonquian (Cree, Ojibwe, among other groups) speaking peoples.  The bulk of the resources in this guide are related to Wiyot (language traditionally spoken on the Pacific Coast just south of their Yurok neighbors, near Humboldt Bay, north of Cape Mendocino and Bear River Mountains and south of Little River) and Yurok (traditionally spoken on the Pacific Coast between the present day cities of Trinidad and Crescent City, California and the lower 45 miles of the Klamath River) speaking peoples (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 8: California, Robert F. Heizer, Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution, 1978. pp. 133, 155-156).

Athabaskan

Languages included in the Athabaskan language family are spoken across North America, with traditional concentrations in western Canada, Alaska, the southwestern, and coastal Pacific regions (Southern Oregon and Northern California) of the United States. This language family includes Hupa, Kato, Mattole, and Tolowa speaking peoples. Traditionally, the Tolowa lived along the Northern California coast from just north of the Oregon border to the mouth of Wilson Creek near present-day Crescent City. The Hupa lived along the Trinity River, the Klamath River's main tributary, close to the Karok and Yurok tribes who lived along the Klamath river. Just north east of Humboldt Bay, the Mattole controlled the Mattole River drainage area in the Pacific Ocean to the Upper North Fork River. The Kato (also spelled Cahto) traditionally lived in the Upper South Fork Eel River area of Northern California (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 8: California, Robert F. Heizer, Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution, 1978. pp. 128, 164, 190-191).

Chimariko

The Chimariko language is an isolate language within the hypothesized "Hokan" language family. Chimariko was traditionally spoken along the Trinity River in Western Trinity County in Northern California, from its confluence with the South Fork Trinity River to the east, as well as in the upland valley of New River to the north and at the confluence of the South Fork Trinity River and Hayfork Creek to the south. The Chimariko people lived closely to the Hupa (to the west) the Whilkut (to the northwest) and the Wintu to the south and east. (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 8: California, Robert F. Heizer, Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution, 1978. p. 205).

Chumashan

The Chumashan language family encompasses the Barbareño, Ineseño, Interior Chumash, Island Chumash, Obispeño, Purisimeño, and Ventureño peoples and languages. Traditionally, they occupied the geographic area from San Luis Obispo to Malibu Canyon and from the Channel Islands in the Pacific as far east as the western edge of the San Joaquin valley. According to the Smithsonian Institution, "Chumash" was a word arbitrarily chosen by American ethnologist John Wesley Powell from the word "mi-tcú-mac" used by the Coastal Chumash for Santa Cruz Island and its inhabitants, or "Tcú-mac" also used by the Coastal Chumash for the Santa Rosa Indians. As it were, each regional group in the Chumashan language family had their own names for themselves (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 8: California, Robert F. Heizer, Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution,1978. pp. 504-507).

Esselen

The Esselen language was an isolate language of the hypothesized Hokan language family. Traditionally, Esselen was spoken in the northern Santa Lucia Range, a thickly-wooded mountain region in present-day Monterey County, with an approximate area of 580 square miles.  According to the Handbook of the North American Indians, the Esselen people are one of the least known about groups of peoples in the California area (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 8: California, Robert F. Heizer, Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution, 1978. pp. 496).

Karuk

Karuk, sometimes written as "Karok," people traditionally lived along the Klamath River in Northern California, from Seiad in present-day Siskiyou County, just 15 miles south of the Oregon border, down to Bluff Creek, just north of Weitchpec, which is 35 miles northeast of Eureka in Humboldt County.  The Karuk language is an isolate and part of the hypothesized Hokan language family (along with the Pomoan, Shastan and Yuman languages, as well as others). (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 8: California, Robert F. Heizer, Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution, 1978. p. 180).

Maiduan

The Maiduan language family consists of Maidu (also known as Northeastern Maidu or Mountain Maidu), Nisenan, and Konkow speaking peoples. The Maiduan language family also makes up one branch of the hypothesized Penution language family, which also includes Modoc, Miwokan, Wintuan, Ohlone, and Yokuts languages. Maidu speaking peoples traditionally lived in the valleys of the Sierra Nevada between Lassen Peak and the town of Quincy, the Sierra Valley (including Big Meadows, Mountain Meadows, Butt Valley, Indian Valley, Genesee Valley, and American Valley), and on the high plateau to the northeast along the Susan River from Susanville to Honey Lake. Nisenan speaking peoples lived nearby throughout the American, Bear, and Yuba River drainages, from where those rivers met the Sacramento River to their headwaters in the Sierra Nevada. Konkow speaking peoples traditionally lived along the Feather River and surrounding areas from 20 miles south of Oroville into the Sierra Nevada foothills, including the lower part of the Feather River Canyon (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 8: California, Robert F. Heizer, Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution, 1978. pp. 370-397).

Miwok (Miwok-Ohlone)

The Miwokan language family consists of the Central Sierra Miwok, Coast Miwok, Lake Miwok, Northern Sierra Miwok, Southern Sierra Miwok, Plains Miwok, and Saclan speaking peoples. The Miwokan language family is part of the hypothesized Penutian language family, which also includes Modoc, Maiduan, Wintuan, Ohlone, and Yokuts languages. Lake Miwoks traditionally dwelled just south of Clear Lake and South Lake, approximately 60 miles north of Santa Rosa in present-day California. Coast Miwok languages were traditionally spoken from the Marin Peninsula in the south up the coast to Bodega Bay to the north.  The Saclan speaking group (Bay Miwok) traditionally lived in present-day Walnut Creek and eastern parts of Contra Costa County to the Sacramento Valley. The Plains Miwok lived along the lower Mokelumne and Calaveras River drainages down to present-day Stockton and both sides of the Sacramento River from Rio Vista to Freeport. Northern Sierra Miwok lived in the foothills and mountains of the Mokelumne and Calaveras rivers, Central Sierra Miwok in the foothills and mountains of the Stanislaus and Tuolumne River drainages, and the Southern Sierra Miwok along the upper drainages of the Chowchilla and Merced Rivers in Merced County, east of present-day Yosemite National Park (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of North American Indians, Vol. 8: California, Robert F. Heizer, Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution, 1978. pp. 264 – 273, 398 – 425).

Modoc

Modoc language, sometimes called Klamath-Modoc, was traditionally spoken in both Northern California and across the state border in southern Oregon (although in Oregon, referred to as Klamath), southeast of Klamath Falls and Klamath and Tule Lakes, as well as along the Lost River. Before contact, there may have been many hundreds of speakers of this language. According to the Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, there are currently no first-language speakers of Modoc. Modoc (Klamath-Modoc) is part of the hypothesized Penutian language family (along with Maiduan, Wintuan, Miwokan, Ohlone, and Yokuts language families) (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of North American Indians, Vol. 12: PlateauWalker, Deward E., Jr., Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution, 1978. pp. 446-466).

Numic (Uto-Aztecan)

The Numic (Uto-Aztecan) language family consists of ChemehueviKawaiisuMonoNorthern Paiute, and Panamint languages. Chemehuevi was traditionally spoken by the Maricopa people near the Colorado River in Chemhuevi valley. Kawaiisu was spoken in the southern Sierra Nevada in the Tehachapi and Piute Mountains. Mono was spoken from Mono Lake in eastern California near present-day Yosemite National Park, south to the Owens River Valley and west to the San Joaquin River, Kings River, and Kaweah River watersheds near present-day Fresno County. Northern Paiute was spoken from Mono Lake north through eastern California, western Nevada, Oregon and Idaho. The Panamint  (also called Coso, Timbisha or Tümpisa) language was spoken around Owens Lake, west of Death Valley, in Death Valley, and east to Beatty, Nevada.  The other Uto-Aztecan languages spoken in California are Tubatulabal and the Takic languages (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 10: Southwest, Alfonso Ortiz, Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution, 1983. pp. 55-98, Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 11: Great Basin, Warren L. d'AzevedoSmithsonian Institution, 1986. pp. 398-465).

Numic (Uto-Aztecan)

The Numic (Uto-Aztecan) language family consists of ChemehueviKawaiisuMonoNorthern Paiute, and Panamint languages. Chemehuevi was traditionally spoken by the Maricopa people near the Colorado River in Chemhuevi valley. Kawaiisu was spoken in the southern Sierra Nevada in the Tehachapi and Piute Mountains. Mono was spoken from Mono Lake in eastern California near present-day Yosemite National Park, south to the Owens River Valley and west to the San Joaquin River, Kings River, and Kaweah River watersheds near present-day Fresno County. Northern Paiute was spoken from Mono Lake north through eastern California, western Nevada, Oregon and Idaho. The Panamint  (also called Coso, Timbisha or Tümpisa) language was spoken around Owens Lake, west of Death Valley, in Death Valley, and east to Beatty, Nevada.  The other Uto-Aztecan languages spoken in California are Tubatulabal and the Takic languages (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 10: Southwest, Alfonso Ortiz, Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution, 1983. pp. 55-98, Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 11: Great Basin, Warren L. d'AzevedoSmithsonian Institution, 1986. pp. 398-465).

Numic (Uto-Aztecan)

The Numic (Uto-Aztecan) language family consists of ChemehueviKawaiisuMonoNorthern Paiute, and Panamint languages. Chemehuevi was traditionally spoken by the Maricopa people near the Colorado River in Chemhuevi valley. Kawaiisu was spoken in the southern Sierra Nevada in the Tehachapi and Piute Mountains. Mono was spoken from Mono Lake in eastern California near present-day Yosemite National Park, south to the Owens River Valley and west to the San Joaquin River, Kings River, and Kaweah River watersheds near present-day Fresno County. Northern Paiute was spoken from Mono Lake north through eastern California, western Nevada, Oregon and Idaho. The Panamint  (also called Coso, Timbisha or Tümpisa) language was spoken around Owens Lake, west of Death Valley, in Death Valley, and east to Beatty, Nevada.  The other Uto-Aztecan languages spoken in California are Tubatulabal and the Takic languages (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 10: Southwest, Alfonso Ortiz, Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution, 1983. pp. 55-98, Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 11: Great Basin, Warren L. d'AzevedoSmithsonian Institution, 1986. pp. 398-465).

Ohlone (Miwok-Ohlone)

The Ohlone (Miwok-Ohlone) language family, also known as Costanoan languages, was traditionally comprised of the Awaswas, Chalon, Chochenyo, Karkin, Mutsun, Ramaytush, Rumsen, and Tamyan speaking peoples. The Ohlone languages were spoken from the San Francisco peninsula in the north, east to the Carquinez Strait in the San Francisco East Bay near present-day Martinez, south through Monterey County. The Ohlone languages are part of the hypothesized Penutian language family, a subgroup with the Miwokan languages. The Penutian language family also includes Klamath-Modoc, Maiduan, Wintuan, and Yokuts languages (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 8: California, Robert F. Heizer, Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution, 1978. pp. 485-495).

Pomoan

The Pomoan language family consists of Central Pomo, Eastern Pomo, Kashaya, Northeastern Pomo, Northern Pomo, Southeastern Pomo, and Southern Pomo peoples. Traditionally, the Central Pomo language was spoken from the Russian River southwest of Clear Lake to the Pacific coast, along the Russian River and in the coastal region of present-day Sonoma and Napa Counties. The Kashaya (or "Kashia", also called "Southwestern Pomo") language was traditionally spoken along the Pacific coast from north of Bodega Bay to Stewart's Point and Annapolis in Sonoma County. The Northern Pomo (also called "Salt Pomo") language was traditionally spoken from the Russian River northwest of Clear Lake to the Pacific coast. The Southeastern Pomo language was traditionally spoken at the eastern end of Clear Lake in three groups, centering around settlements on Anderson Island off Buckingham Point, on Rattlesnake Island in the eastern arm of Clear Lake, and on Indian Island at the southern tip of Clear Lake. The Southern Pomo (also called "Gallinomero") language was traditionally spoken on the lower Russian River, in the Dry Creek Valley, and on the Santa Rosa plain. The Eastern Pomo language was traditionally spoken on the eastern side of Clear Lake, primarily along streams set back from the coastal areas. The Northeastern Pomo language was traditionally spoken on the western edge of the Sacramento Valley, along Stony Creek. Together, the Pomoan languages form one branch of the hypothesized Hokan language family, the other members of which are Chimariko, Esselen, Karuk, the Palaihnihan languages, Salinan, the Shastan languages, Washo, Yana, and the Yuman languages (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 8: California, Robert F. Heizer, Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution, 1978. pp. 274-323).

Pomoan

The Pomoan language family consists of Central Pomo, Eastern Pomo, Kashaya, Northeastern Pomo, Northern Pomo, Southeastern Pomo, and Southern Pomo peoples. Traditionally, the Central Pomo language was spoken from the Russian River southwest of Clear Lake to the Pacific coast, along the Russian River and in the coastal region of present-day Sonoma and Napa Counties. The Kashaya (or "Kashia", also called "Southwestern Pomo") language was traditionally spoken along the Pacific coast from north of Bodega Bay to Stewart's Point and Annapolis in Sonoma County. The Northern Pomo (also called "Salt Pomo") language was traditionally spoken from the Russian River northwest of Clear Lake to the Pacific coast. The Southeastern Pomo language was traditionally spoken at the eastern end of Clear Lake in three groups, centering around settlements on Anderson Island off Buckingham Point, on Rattlesnake Island in the eastern arm of Clear Lake, and on Indian Island at the southern tip of Clear Lake. The Southern Pomo (also called "Gallinomero") language was traditionally spoken on the lower Russian River, in the Dry Creek Valley, and on the Santa Rosa plain. The Eastern Pomo language was traditionally spoken on the eastern side of Clear Lake, primarily along streams set back from the coastal areas. The Northeastern Pomo language was traditionally spoken on the western edge of the Sacramento Valley, along Stony Creek. Together, the Pomoan languages form one branch of the hypothesized Hokan language family, the other members of which are Chimariko, Esselen, Karuk, the Palaihnihan languages, Salinan, the Shastan languages, Washo, Yana, and the Yuman languages (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 8: California, Robert F. Heizer, Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution, 1978. pp. 274-323).

Shastan

The Shastan language family includes Konomihu, New River Shasta, and Okwanuchu, and Shasta speaking peoples. The Konomihu language was traditionally spoken on the lower Salmon River (by the twentieth century, descendants of the Konomihu identified as Shasta). The New River Shasta are believed to have been a distinct ethnographic and linguistic group who lived in the Salmon mountains, along the south and north forks of the Salmon River, as well as along the upper drainage of the New River. Information about New River Shasta is difficult to find, according to the Survey of California and Other Indian Languages. The Okwanuchu language was spoken at the head of the Sacramento River and to the east on the upper McCloud River (fewer than 100 words were recorded in the early twentieth century of this language). The Shasta language was traditionally spoken from the confluence of Bear Creek and the Rogue River in Oregon, across the Siskiyou Mountains to the upper Klamath River in California and southward along the Shasta and Scott Rivers to their headwaters. Together the Shastan languages comprise one branch of the hypothesized Hokan language family. This includes, in addition, Chimariko, Esselen, Karuk, the Palaihnihan languages, the Pomoan languages, Salinan, Washo, Yana, and the Yuman languages (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 8: California, Robert F. Heizer, Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution, 1978. pp. 211-224).

Takic (Uto-Aztecan)

The Takic (Uto-Aztecan) language family includes Cahuilla, Cupeño, Gabrielino, Juaneño, Kitanemuk, Luiseño, Serrano, and Tataviam (also called "Alliklik") speaking peoples. The Cahuilla language was traditionally spoken in the San Gorgonio Pass, to the east in the Coachella Valley to the Salton Sea, and to the south on the western slopes of the San Jacinto and Santa Rosa Mountains. The Cupeño language was traditionally spoken near the headwaters of the San Luis Rey River at the foot of Hot Springs Mountain. The Gabrielino language was traditionally spoken throughout the Los Angeles basin, to the north in the San Fernando Valley (where it was called "Fernandeño"), and to the east. The Juaneño language was traditionally spoken on the San Juan Creek (in what is now Orange County). The Kitanemuk language was traditionally spoken in the Tehachapi Pass area and in the western Mojave Desert. The Luiseño language was traditionally spoken on the San Luis Rey River, from the coast to its headwaters above Lake Henshaw, and to the south, as well as on the upper Santa Margarita River and around Lake Elsinore-Temecula. The Serrano language was traditionally spoken in the San Bernadino Mountains and the adjacent regions of the Mojave Desert. The Tataviam language was traditionally spoken on the upper Santa Clara River into the Sawmill and Tehachapi Mountains (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 8: California, Robert F. Heizer, Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution, 1978. pp. 535-591).

Tubatulabal (Uto-Aztecan)

The Tubatulabal (Uto-Aztecan) language (sometimes written "Tübatulabal" or called "Pahkanapul") was traditionally spoken along the upper Kern River, northeast of Bakersfield and southwest of the Sequoia National Park in Tulare County.  Before contact there may have been over 1000 speakers of the Tubatulabal language. According to the Survey of California and Other Indian Languages there are less than a dozen first-language speakers today (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 8: California, Robert F. Heizer, Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution, 1978. pp. 437-445).

Wintuan

The Wintuan language family consists of Nomlaki, Patwin, and Wintu langauges. Nomlaki (also known as “Wintun”) was traditionally spoken in the Sacramento Valley from Cottonwood Creek in the north to Grindstone Creek in the south. The Patwin language has two main dialects: River Patwin, which was traditionally spoken along the Sacramento River in Colusa County, and Hill Patwin, spoken in the plains and foothills to the west. There is a third language, spoken from central Yolo County to Suisun Bay and west to the Napa River, which may be a third dialect (Southern Patwin). The Wintu language was traditionally spoken at the upper end of the Sacramento Valley, north of Cottonwood Creek, on the upper Sacramento River to the north, and on the upper Trinity River to the west. Before contact, there were 12,500 speakers of Wintuan languages, and today there is only one speaker of Nomlaki and one speaker of Patwin, according to the Survey of California and Other Indian Languages. The Wintuan language family makes up one branch the hypothesized Penutian language family, which also includes Klamath-Modoc, the Maiduan languages, the Miwokan languages, the Ohlone languages, and the Yokuts languages (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 8: California, Robert F. Heizer, Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution, 1978. pp. 324-340).

Yana

Yana speaking peoples traditionally lived in the hills and canyons on the eastern edge of the Sacramento Valley between the Pit River in the north and the Feather River in the south (the Southern Yana were also called the Yahi). Today there are no knowYana speaking peoples living. The Yana language is an isolate within the hypothesized Hokan language family, along with Chimariko, Esselen, Karuk, the Palaihnihan languages, the Pomoan languages, Salinan, the Shastan languages, Washo, and the Yuman languages (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 8: California, Robert F. Heizer, Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution, 1978. pp. 361-369).

Yokuts languages

The Yokuts languages, while at times considered a single language, might also be considered distinct languages. Before contact there were nearly 40 different Yokuts languages, including Wikchamni Yokuts, Choynimni Yokuts, Yawelmani Yokuts, Chukchansi Yokuts and Tachi Yokuts, with a total of 18,000 speakers. Yokuts languages were traditionally spoken across the southern half of the Central Valley, both in the valley itself and in the Sierra foothills. The Yokuts languages comprise one branch of the hypothesized Penutian language family, which also includes Klamath-Modoc, the Maiduan languages, the Miwokan languages, the Ohlone languages, and the Wintuan languages (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 8: California, Robert F. Heizer, Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution, 1978. pp. 448-470).

Yukian

The Yukian language family includes both Northern Yukian and Wappo speaking peoples. Northern Yukian, which was spoken from the coastal region west of the Sacramento Valley north to Fort Bragg on the Mendocino County coast, has three dialects: Yuki, which was spoken in the upper drainage of the Middle Fork of the Eel River; Huchnom, spoken on the lower Eel River; and Coast Yuki, spoken on the Pacific coast between Fort Bragg and Usal Creek. The Wappo language was traditionally spoken in Alexander Valley, most of Napa Valley, and northern Sonoma Valley. According to the Survey of California and Other Indian Languages there are no first-language speakers of either language today (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 8: California, Robert F. Heizer, Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution, 1978. pp. 249-255).

Yuman

The Yuman language family includes Kumeyaay (also called Diegueño), Maricopa, Mojave, and Quechan (Yuma) speaking peoples. The Kumeyaay language (which had two varieties, Ipai and Tipai) was traditionally spoken in the southern parts of present-day San Diego County and northwest Baja California. Maricopa (also called "Piipaash") speaking peoples traditionally lived along the Colorado River between the Mojave peoples to the north and Quechan peoples to the south. Maricopa speakers were displaced to the Gila River, southwest of present-day Phonenix, Arizona. The last Maricopa peoples to move into Arizona were the Halchidhoma, who originally lived near Blythe, California. The Mojave (also spelled “Mohave”) people traditionally lived along the Colorado River from Black Canyon in the north through the Mohave Valley and into the Chemehuevi Valley to the south. Beginning in the 19th century, the Mojave moved along the Colorado River to the present-day towns of Blythe, California and Ehrenberg, Arizona. Quechan (also known as "Kwtsan" or "Yuma") speaking peoples traditionally lived on the Colorado River around its confluence with the Gila River, near present-day Yuma, Arizona, just south of the California border and east of the Mexico border. The Yuman language family is one branch of the hypothesized Hokan language family, which also includes Chimariko, Esselen, Karuk, the Palaihnihan languages, the Pomoan languages, Salinan, the Shastan languages, Washo, and Yana (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 10: Southwest, Alfonso Ortiz, Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution, 1983. pp. 1-98).

Yuman

The Yuman language family includes Kumeyaay (also called Diegueño), Maricopa, Mojave, and Quechan (Yuma) speaking peoples. The Kumeyaay language (which had two varieties, Ipai and Tipai) was traditionally spoken in the southern parts of present-day San Diego County and northwest Baja California. Maricopa (also called "Piipaash") speaking peoples traditionally lived along the Colorado River between the Mojave peoples to the north and Quechan peoples to the south. Maricopa speakers were displaced to the Gila River, southwest of present-day Phonenix, Arizona. The last Maricopa peoples to move into Arizona were the Halchidhoma, who originally lived near Blythe, California. The Mojave (also spelled “Mohave”) people traditionally lived along the Colorado River from Black Canyon in the north through the Mohave Valley and into the Chemehuevi Valley to the south. Beginning in the 19th century, the Mojave moved along the Colorado River to the present-day towns of Blythe, California and Ehrenberg, Arizona. Quechan (also known as "Kwtsan" or "Yuma") speaking peoples traditionally lived on the Colorado River around its confluence with the Gila River, near present-day Yuma, Arizona, just south of the California border and east of the Mexico border. The Yuman language family is one branch of the hypothesized Hokan language family, which also includes Chimariko, Esselen, Karuk, the Palaihnihan languages, the Pomoan languages, Salinan, the Shastan languages, Washo, and Yana (Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, UC Berkeley & Handbook of the North American Indians, Vol. 10: Southwest, Alfonso Ortiz, Vol. Ed., Smithsonian Institution, 1983. pp. 1-98).
