Wetalh

Wetalh was spoken in the Portland Canal area of northwestern BC. The langauge is currently considered a sleeping language. There was a speaker of the language recorded in 1927[[283]] but there have not been any speakers of the language reported in the past few decades.
The name of the language was recorded by anthropologist George T. Emmons in 1911[[257]]. An article by Boas and Goddard[[284]] contains almost all of the known Tsetsaut material and these were recorded by Boas in 1894. A few words remembered by Gitanyow elders are also mentioned in Sterritt et al.[[283]].
