Northern Tutchone or Selkirk is a variety of the Tutchone language spoken by the Northern Tutchone people of Yukon, Canada. The language is currently threatened, as only 200 individuals report to speak it as of 1995. Now, people are trying to revive Northern Tutchone, teaching it at primary schools, and one individual, Jerry Alfred is including the language in songs he has written.
