WIKIPEDIA articles! Quiripi is the name of a Native American
language (also known as the Proto Eastern Algonquian - Archaic
(PEA-A) R-Dialect), spoken by the Quinnipiac - the indigenous
people of southwestern Connecticut. One of the earliest Quiripi
vocabularies was compiled by Rev. Abraham Pierson in 1658, during
his ministry at Branford, Connecticut. His work consisted of a
67-page bi-lingual collection of indigenous words. In 1997, Blair
A. Rudes identified the dialect as Wampano (Quiripi). He recognized
that the language had been spoken by indigenous people all "[a]long
Long Island Sound ... from the Connecticut River ... to at least as
far as Norwalk ... possibly up to the Hudson in the west, and
included a portion of land in present-day New York State ... [as
well as] south central and western Long Island."
