* The Saluda are believed to be a band of Shawnee based on circumstantial evidence. They would therefore fall into the Algonquian Language Family.

** Although Yuchi is thought to be related to the Siouan languages, it is distinct enough to be considered a separate language stock, known as Yuchi or Uchean.
