  1. For some reason I get several but strange Semitic vibes and flashes here, like from a divergent form of liturgical Hebrew or some little known Jewish language … But apart from that I’d say this is an indigenous language of North America. I hope that helps!

  2. As I often say”…from the timbre of the voice…” it is definitely a North America indigenous language. I can see, however, why someone would think it is like Hebrew as there are a LOT of sounds like Hebrew. NOW we just have to figure out which one it is!

  3. Shenn Ghaelgeyr – yes, that was a typo, copied from the quiz last week when there were two mystery languages.

  4. It’s The Lord’s Prayer in Tongva (aka Gabrieleño), an Uto-Aztec language once spoken on Santa Catalina Island and the opposite mainland. That was pure luck, not knowledge, btw.

  5. Emanuel is right – the mystery language is Tongva, an Uto-Aztecan language which was spoken in Southern California, around Los Angeles and on Santa Catalina Island, and which is currently being revived.

    The recording comes from YouTube:
