​About Häł gołan

 

The Hän language is spoken by just two speakers in the village of Eagle, Alaska and by a few more in Dawson City, Yukon. It is most related to Gwich’in and was used as a lingua franca by several Native groups during the Gold Rush era.

 

Hän has four lexical tones: a low tone, a high tone, a rising tone and a falling tone.
