Assiniboine (Nakoda)

Assiniboine is a Siouan language spoken in Southern Saskatchewan in Canada and Montana in the United States by about 150 people. Assiniboine, which is also known as Nakoda or Hohe, is a variety of Dakotan Sioux and is closely related to Stoney (Nakoda), which is also known as Alberta Assiniboine. However the two languages have only limited mutual intelligibility.

There are several ways of writing Assiniboine, mainly using the Latin alphabet, but some Assiniboine speakers apparently use syllabics.
