Michif is a highly endangered, perhaps moribund language, despite efforts to keep the language alive. In 2013, the number of speakers is probably below 100 – including a handful of young people who learnt it through a master-apprentice program. Michif is spoken by few people in a vast area, covering three Canadian provinces and two US states, and probably never by more than a few thousand people. The language is relatively homogenous. The default lect represented in APiCS is the one spoken on both sides of the Manitoba-North Dakota border, in and around the Turtle Mountain Reservation and in southwestern Manitoba. Two deviant lects are known to have existed, one in Camperville (a town in Manitoba where also speakers of the default lect migrated to) influenced by Ojibwe, and one in southeastern Saskatchewan, close to Cypress Hills. Most speakers in Saskatchewan, Montana and probably also Alberta (where no speakers could be found in the field survey) spoke the default lect, whereas a different variety, undocumented, may have been spoken in Minnesota until recently.
