Algonquian Family


The Algonquian family includes several languages in North America (Canada, U.S.A. and Mexico), such as Cheyenne, Arapaho, Cree, Ojibwa, and Fox. Since it has been connected historically with some non-Algonquian languages in North America, it is part of a larger family, the Algic stock.

Kickapoo is the only language from this family that is spoken in Mexico, in the state of Coahuila. It is closely related to a larger group of the same name in the state of Oklahoma, USA. Speakers of this language group arrived in Mexico in 1839.
