Tahltan (Tāłtān)

Tahltan is a Northern Athabaskan language spoken in northern British Columbia in Canada, mainly in Telegraph Creek, Dease Lake, and Iskut. In 2014 there were about 45 native speakers of Tahltan, and another 60 semi-fluent speakers.

The language is also known as Nahanni, and native names for the language include Tāłtān, Tałtan ẕāke, Dah dẕāhge (our language) or Didene keh (this people’s way). It is closely related to Kaska.

Efforts to revitalize Tahltan include class for children and adults, culture camps, and the production of learning resources, such as dictionaries, recordings and books.

The Tahltan alphabet was developed by Colin Carter, a linguist, with help from a number of Tahltan speakers.
