Description : Nisga,a-Gitxsan is a Penutian language of the Northwest Coast, spoken by about 2000 people in the Nisga,a (or Nisgha) and Gitxsan (or Gitksan) tribes of British Columbia. Though the Nisga,a and the Gitxsan are culturally and politically distinct nations, their languages are no more different than American and Australian English and speakers from the two tribes can understand each other with little difficulty.
