The Euchee (Yuchi) language is a critically endangered Native American language spoken by the Euchee tribe in Sapulpa, Oklahoma, with only four fluent elder teachers remaining. The Euchee language is also considered a language isolate by linguists—meaning it is not related to any other language on earth. But the Euchee tribe is currently working hard to revitalize their language. They hold daily language apprenticeship meetings between the elders and youth in the morning, and then some of these same proficient youth then teach others in preschool and after-school classes throughout the day. The youngest fluent speaker of Euchee in the tribe, Renée Grounds, tells this Yuchi legend that has been handed down for generations and was passed down to the current generation by "Ida Clinton Riley when she was about 100 years old."
