Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Kitsai language is an extinct member of the Caddoan language family. It was spoken in Oklahoma by the Kichai tribe and became extinct in the 1930s. It is thought to be related to Wichita but more closely to Pawnee. The Kichai people today are enrolled in the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes, headquartered in Anadarko, Oklahoma. Kitsai is documented in the still mostly-unpublished field notes of anthropologist Alexander Lesser, of the Hofstra University. Lesser discovered five speakers of Kitsai in 1928-9 - none of whom spoke English - but working through Wichita/English bilingual translators, he filled 41 notebooks with Kitsai material.show more
