Northern Pomo

Northern Pomo is an extinct Pomoan language formerly spoken around Clear Lake in Lake County in California in the USA. The last native speaker, Elenor Stevenson Gonzales, died in 2005.

Northern Pomo was first documented in 1891 by John Wesley Powell, a professor at Illinois Wesleyan University. More documentation was made in 1908 by Samuel Barrett, an anthropologist and linguist.

Between 1979 and 2005, Catherine O'Connor, a linguist at the University of California, Berkely, worked to make recordings of the last native speakers. She put together an online spoken dictionary, and other materials.
