Quapaw (O-gah-pah)

Quapaw is a Siouan language that was originally spoken in Arkansas, and is now spoken mainly in Quapaw in the northeast of Oklahoma in the USA. According to the 1990 there were 35 native speakers of Quapaw, which is also known as Alkansea, Arkansas, Ogahpah or Kwapa.

Quapaw was first documented in the 19th century by George Izard, Lewis F. Hadly and a number of others. Several linguists produced further documentation of the language, including a dictionary, during the 20th century.

Efforts to revitalise Quapaw are currently underway, and include classes for children and adults, online lessons, and an online audio lexicon.
