Area where the Utian languages were spoken
Mutsun is one of the languages of the Ohlone people of California.
The people [ edit ]
Mutsun (also known as San Juan Bautista Costanoan) is an Utian language in the Ohlone/Costanoan language family that was spoken in Northern California by the division of the Ohlone who lived in the Mission San Juan Bautista area.
The language [ edit ]
Ascencion Solorsano, who died in 1930, left mass amounts of language and cultural data of the Mutsun. The Spaniard, Father Felipe Arroyo de la Cuesta, wrote a grammar of the language, and linguist
John Peabody Harrington collected very extensive notes on the language from Solorsano. Harrington's field notes formed the basis of the grammar of Mutsun written by Marc Okrand as a University of California dissertation in 1977, which to this day remains the only grammar ever written of any [2 ] Costanoan language.
