Tanacross is an endangered Athabascan language spoken near Tanana Crossing in Alaska. The name of the language is itself a contraction of Tanana Crossing, not a native term.

Tanacross is spoken by about 60 people, and is in danger of dying out. The linguist Gary Holton has compiled a grammar of Tanacross, at least preserving some of it for possible revival in the future.
