Munsee (Huluníixsuwaakan)

Munsee is an Eastern Algonquian language spoken on the Moraviantown Reserve in Ontario in Canada. In 2009 there were fewer than 10 elderly speakers. Some younger people are also learning the language.

Munsee is also known as Munsee Delaware, Delaware or Ontario Delaware, and was formerly spoken in the area of New York City, including Long Island, Manhattan Island, Staten Island, northern New Jersey and northeastern Pennsylvania.

Munsee speakers call themselves Delaware in English, and Lunaape [lənáːpeːw] in Munsee. They call their language Huluníixsuwaakan [hə̀lə̆ni·xsəwá·kan], which means "speaking the Delaware language".
