Buena Vista was a Yokutsan language of California.

The language was "formerly spoken in at least two local varieties around Buena Vista Lake in Kern County, California,"[2] in the villages of "Hometwoli, Loasau, Tuhohi, [and] Tulamni."[3]

Dialects[edit]

Two dialects of Buena Vista were Tulamni and Hometwali.[4] Tuhohi (also called Tohohai or Tuhohayi) was a similar dialect, spoken by a tribe who "lived among channels and sloughs of Kern River where they enter Tulare Lake."[5]

A variety of the Barbareño language "was heavily influenced by Buena Vista Yokuts." This language was called Emigdiano, as it was "spoken at San Emigdio near Buena Vista Lake."[6]
