The Origin of the Chickasaw Language



published on 22 April 2014

Chickasaw is a language of the Muskogean family of Native American languages, meaning that it descends from a common ancestor along with Creek, Choctaw, and several others, all of which originated 3,000-5,000 years ago. All of these languages are endangered, particularly the Chickasaw language, which has approximately 50-75 Native fluent speakers, in contrast to speakers of the Creek language, which number about 6,000.
