This category is not for pure or "Old Chinook". If your site relates to the original Penutian language spoken by Northwest Native Americans, please submit it to Chinook.
Open to sites relating to Chinook Jargon, a contact language which began forming in the 18th Century between speakers of Nootka and Old Chinook, and the English and French, primarily for trading purposes.
There have not been native speakers of Chinook Jargon for generations, but isolated words remain in the modern Native lexicon, and a form of it is reported to be used on the Grand Ronde Reservation in Oregon, USA. With other endangered Native languages, a movement exists to preserve Chinook Jargon for cultural identity and enjoyment.
