More information:

    Tagish label also applied to inland Tlingit.

    It is possible that the last fluent speaker of Tagish was Lucy Wren, who died May 2008. She is described as "one of a few individuals remaining who retain[ed] some knowledge of the language" (http://www.yesnet.yk.ca/firstnations/tagish.html). "In addition to Tlingit, English and Southern Tutchone, Lucy also spoke Tagish, and was possibly the best remaining speaker of that language" (http://www.ynlc.ca/bios/t2z/wrenl/wrenl.html).
