  Yaghan language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Yagán, also known as Yámana, Yaghan, and Háusi Kúta, is one of the indigenous languages of Tierra del Fuego, spoken by the Yagán people.
In addition to normal serialization Yaghan also exhibits complex verb stems of a type relatively common in western North America, where the main verb is flanked by instrument/body part manner of action prefixes and pathway/position suffixes.
There is little or no reduplication evident on the Yaghan verb, and sound symbolism of the augmentative/diminutive type appears to be largely lexicalized.

 List of Indigenous languages in Argentina - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Yaghan, Yámana, Háusi-Kúta or Yagán is a language spoken by indigenous peoples of southern shores and islands of Tierra del Fuego.
In Argentina Yaghan became extinct at the beginning of 20th century, but lexicons and early recordings remain.
It is recognised in a number of well known toponyms as Ushuaia, Lapataia, Tolhuin, etc. Some elder speakers (between 1 and 5) remain in Chile, where the language is nearly extinct.

The white masks were worn to represent a perch, the spirit of the sea, in the wasenim-yaka dance and in the lepalus-yaka dance (small red fish).
The Yaghan used this type of mask in the initiation rites during the Kina ceremony.
According to the primordial myth of the Yaghan, the original supremacy of the women was followed by an inversion of roles, periodically sanctioned by the rite itself.

 What Does Yaghan Have to Do with Digital Technology?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
Before moving to the case of Yaghan and Ona, however, it is necessary to consider why the dissemination of large quantities of collected data has never become the routine practice of linguists and anthropologists.
He compiled a large Yaghan (Yamana) dictionary, which to date is the most comprehensive lexicon of the language ever published, as far as we know.

 Tierra del Fuego, Missionaries and Catechists
In the mid-19th century, British Anglican groups attempted to establish Christian mission stations among the Yaghan, a nomadic canoe-people living in the southernmost channels of the Tierra del Fuego archipelago.
Together with Hunziker, he built a hut at Weddell's Bluff, near the mouth of the Santa Cruz River (on the Atlantic seaboard); however, relations with the local natives were difficult and unproductive, and the project failed.
Little by little, the new community prospered, and by the end of six months a small group of natives were practising the rudiments of vegetable and livestock farming, learning to erect buildings and being instructed in the Christian way of life.

 11/4/2004 -- CHILE: Climate changes may tip delicate balance in Patagonia
Disease took its toll among the Yaghan tribes, and by the 20th century their culture had basically ceased to exist.
Modern-day research has proven that the Yaghan culture was incredibly complex; their vocabulary had at least 35,000 words, far more than any of the European languages.
Today only two Yaghans who speak the language are still alive, according to the New York Times, and I was privileged to meet one of them, Emelinda, an elderly, snaggle-tooth woman, during a brief stop at her tiny village in Puerto Williams.

 The Dictionary in Bruce Chatwin's In Patagonia
Later in the chapter, Chatwin relates to the reader his knowledge of the Yaghans' lifestyle and suggests the culture and its people are superior to the Western existence he and his readers know.
Chatwin conveys the message that the Yaghan Indians must be understood in their own right and not held to Western ideals and standards.
While he proposes that if one looks at the Yaghan Indians with a culturally relativistic eye, the Yaghan's superiority will become clear, he also insinuates that the way in which this tribe views outsiders is quite similar to the way Westerners themselves view peoples outside Europe.

 Tierra del Fuego Culture
The Yaghan (or Yamana), Alacaluts, and the Ona peoples once roamed the desolate area, enduring rough climatic conditions and finding little competition for the wildlife and marine resources upon which they relied for survival.
The Yaghan people constantly had a fire stoked to keep themselves warm; they even chanced the demise of their transportation by starting fires within their bark canoes, providing warmth while they traveled the chilly waters.
Distinctive from their coastal counterparts, these people were gigantic in stature and survived by hunting guanacos and tuco-tuco, a type of rodent, using a bow and arrow as a weapon.

This editorial suggests that linguists need to be more aggressive in exploting the technology so that information about language is spread more rapidly and in a more efficient format.
To make this point, the case of fieldwork on Yaghan is examined.
Though early fieldwork was carried out on Yaghan very little about the language is known because of the way the data was collected and reported.

Three hundred pages into it, the author is finally living his dream of leaving the land of the Yaghan and living among the Ona (a much fiercer tribe of hunters compared to the Yaghan who are coastal and live by fishing).
This is a fascinating autobiography in that it starts well before its author and subject was born with the adventures of his missionary father, and it's full of really well observed anthropological, cultural, and linguistic information about both the Yaghans and the Ona people.
He doesn't get to the flora and fauna much until the later chapters and I've had to discipline myself not to read ahead.

Tierra del Fuego, for those reading this name for the first time, may evoke an image of an area full of volcanoes, with relaxingly warm thermal waters, however, the fire lies only in the name of this remote and cold island, sharing sovereignty between Chile and Argentina and surrounded by the Antarctic, the "White Continent".
The reason for the name has nothing to do with the climate or the smoking, active volcanoes, but rather with the bonfires which were lit five centuries ago by the Ona and Yaghan tribes, who were the owners and masters of this island.
Due to its globally remote location, it has up to 23 hours of sunlight every day in summer, but this does not warm it up much.
