The Western Apache language is a Southern Athabaskan language spoken by over 12,000 of the Western Apaches living primarily in east central Arizona. Goodwin (1938) claims that Western Apache can be divided into five dialect groupings: Cibecue Northern Tonto Southern Tonto San Carlos White Mountain Other researchers do not find any linguistic evidence for five groups, but rather three main varieties with several subgroupings: San Carlos White Mountain Tonto Western Apache is most closely related to other Southern Athabaskan languages like Navajo, Chiricahua Apache, Mescalero Apache, Lipan Apache, Plains Apache, and Jicarilla Apache. In 2011, the San Carlos Apache Tribe’s Language Preservation Program, located in Peridot, Arizona, began its outreach to the 14,000 tribal members residing within the districts of Bylas, Gilson Wash, Peridot and Seven Mile Wash.
