Language Status
ISO 639-3: 

There is a revival of southeastern Pomo amongst the current population. There is a 1 fluent speaker still alive, but there is a core group of learners who are documenting vocabulary and grammar at a rapid rate. They are working on compiling information on the language from archives at UC Berkeley, as well as from elicitation notes from the fluent speaker. Koi and Elem tribes have both started classes in their communities.
