Arikara is a Caddoan language of the Great Plains, once spoken in North and South Dakota. It is a polysynthetic tone language with complex morphology. The people and their language are sometimes referred to as Arikari, Arikaree, or just Ree, but they call themselves Sanish or Sahnish. Today, the Arikara Indians share a reservation with the Mandan and Hidatsa tribes. The Arikara language has been in decline and is spoken today by only a few dozen elders in North Dakota, but some young people are working to keep their ancestral language alive.
