Yahgan Version of the Scriptures

Yahgan is the language spoken by a tribe in the south of Tierra del Fuego. The Reverend T. Bridges, of the South American Missionary Society, who has been laboring among this people for the last eleven years, and has taught them to read and write their own tongue, written according to Ellis's phonetic system, has prepared the gospel of Luke in the above language, spoken by about three thousand people. This is the only part of the Bible which has been published in Yahgan by the British and Foreign Bible Society, and appears for the first time in the seventy-sixth report (1880), in the table of languages. (B.P.)
