The Cheyenne language is a Native American language spoken by the Cheyenne people, primarily in present day Montana and Oklahoma in the United States. Cheyenne is a part of the Algonquian language family and more specifically it originated in the Great Plains region of early North America. Sadly, the Cheyenne language is in great decline with only about 1,000 people speaking it, all adults. Cheyenne has a simple phonology and is considered a pitch accent language meaning the same word said with different pitches changes the word’s meaning.
