Bibliography of Materials on the
Tsetsaut Language

Boas and Goddard (1924) contains almost all of the known Tsetsaut material, recorded by Boas in 1894. The language is believed to have been extinct for decades but the exact date of extinction is not known. One speaker was still alive in 1927. A few words remembered by Gitanyow elders are mentioned in Sterritt et al. (1998).
