Tagish is a language spoken in the Tagish region of northwestern Canada. It is a member of the Athabascan language family, and is closely related to Tlingit and Eyak. Tagish has two dialects, Northern and Southern. The Northern dialect is spoken in the communities of Carcross and Tagish, while the Southern dialect is spoken in the community of Atlin. Tagish is an endangered language, with only about 200 speakers remaining. However, there is some effort being made to revive the language, through programs such as the Tagish Language Revitalization Program. If you are interested in learning Tagish, there are a few resources available. The Tagish Language Dictionary, published in 2009, is a good place to start. The website FirstVoices also has a Tagish language learning section, with audio recordings of words and phrases.
