Hupa is an Athabaskan language spoken along the lower reaches of the Trinity river in Humboldt County in northwest California in the USA. It is the language of the Hoopa Valley Tribe, who call themselves Natinixwe. In 2015 there was one native speaker of Hupa, and another 30 or so who had some knowledge of the language. Efforts being made to revitalise the language include classes for adults and children, and language immersion summer camps.
