Algonquian language is a subfamily of Native American languages and speakers of Algonquian languages stretch from the North American east coast to the Rocky Mountains. The parent language of Algonquian called Proto-Algonquian was spoken at least 3000 years ago and more. Today, hundreds of thousands of people identify themselves with various Algonquian tribes and cultures. Before Europeans came to North America, Algonquian settlements ranged throughout New England, the southern part of the continent all the way into the Midwest.
