Nisga’a is a Tsimshianic language spoken by the Nisga’a people in northwestern British Columbia in Canada. In 2014 there were 2,818 speakers according to the First Peoples' Cultural Council.
Nisga’a was first documented by James Benjamin McCullagh, an Anglican missionary, in the 1890s. He translated parts of the Bible and the Book of Common Prayer into Nisga’a. He also produced a primer for students.
