Kwakiutl is the Indigenous language spoken by the Kwakwaka'wakw. It belongs to the Wakashan language family. There are about 250 Kwakiutl speakers today, which amounts to 5% of the Kwakwaka'wakw population. Because of the small number of speakers, and the fact that very few children learn Kwakiutl as a first language, its long-term viability is in question. However, interest from many Kwakwaka'wakw in preserving their language and a number of revitalization projects are countervailing pressures which may extend the viability of the language.
The ethnonym Kwakwaka'wakw literally means "speakers of Kwakiutl", effectively defining an ethnic connection by reference to a shared language. However, the Kwakiutl spoken by each of the surviving tribes with Kwakiutl speakers exhibits dialectical differences from that spoken by other tribes. There are four major dialects which are unambiguously dialects of Kwakiutl: Kwak̓wala, ’Nak̓wala, G̱uc̓ala and T̓łat̓łasik̓wala.
In addition to these dialects, there are also Kwakwaka'wakw tribes that speak Liq'wala. Liq'wala has sometimes been considered to be a dialect of Kwakiutl, and sometimes a separate language. The standard orthography for Liq'wala is quite different from the most widely-used orthography for Kwakiutl, which tends to widen the apparent differences between Liq'wala and Kwakiutl.
A number of revitalization efforts have recently attempted to reverse language loss for Kwakiutl. A proposal to build a Kwakwaka'wakw First Nations Centre for Language Culture has gained wide support. A review of revitalization efforts in the 1990s shows that the potential to fully revitalize Kwakiutl still remains, but serious hurdles also exist.
