Language Quiz 10 March 2019 By Simon Here’s a recording in a mystery language. Can you identify the language, and do you know where it’s spoken?

Amerindian, and if I had heard it out in public I would have said “Na-Dine / Navajo”, but I assume Simon has given us something more obscure.
Living in New Brunswick Canada and having seen the profile you did on Malecite-Passamaquoddy PLUS listening to this and being somewhat familiar with the sounds, I wonder if it isn’t indeed Malecite or at least a North American First Nations language.
An indigenous language of North America for sure.
I think I hear the speaker say the native name of the language/ethnicity twice, at about 0:14 and 0:17. If so, I know the answer.
Sameer ud Dowla Khan is right. I think I have heard her say “Anishinaabe” in 0:17. So that’s my guess
The answer is Algonquin (Anicinâbemowin), an Algonquian language spoken in Quebec and Ontario in Canada.
The recording comes from YouTube:
