Native Languages of the Kickapoo (Kikapoo, Kikapu)
Language: Kickapoo is an Algonquian language closely related to Mesquakie-Sauk (some linguists even consider it a dialect of Mesquakie-Sauk). Kickapoo and Mesquakie-Sauk are both polysynthetic languages with complex verb morphology and fairly free word order. Unlike Mesquakie-Sauk, however, Kickapoo is a tone language–the high or low pitch of a vowel can change a Kickapoo word’s meaning.

1) Gennady Pavlishin’s illustration to a storybook titled Tales of the Amur, which contains folk tales collected amongst the Nanai people by Dmitry Nagishkin. The illustrator was quite fascinated with traditional motifs of peoples living in the region of the river Amur and he integrated a good amount of these patterns into his artwork.
