  1. Achomawi

    The Achomawi are one of eleven bands of the Pit River tribe of Native Americans who lived in what is now northeastern California in the United States. Nine autonomous bands of the Pit River Indians spoke various dialects of one common language. Early white linguists and anthropologists called the language "Achomawi," although that name is not what the Indians called it. The use of the word "Achomawi" to describe the language was also overgeneralized and used to describe all nine bands, even though the other eight bands each had separate names, territories, and dialects of the common language. Most of this article is about the actual Achomawi band
