More information:

    Together with Taos, Picuris belongs to the Northern Tiwa branch of the Kiowa-Tanoan family, but these languages are not mutually intelligible. Ethnologue puts Taos and Picuris together in its "Northern Tiwa", lists Taos and Picuris as dialects, but yet says that "Taos and Picuris are not mutually intelligible (Golla 2007)." Others distinguish these as two separate languages.
