Catawba is an extinct language formerly spoken by the Catawba of the United States. The language went extinct due to the introduction of English to the tribes of Catawba. Its last known speaker, an impostor known as Cromwell West, or Red Thunder Cloud died on January 8, 1996. Currently, the tribes are trying to revive the language, as not all information was lost.[2][3][4][5]
