From a post at wood s lot
The Livonians or Livs are the nearly extinct indigenous inhabitants of Livonia, a large part of what is today northwestern Latvia and southwestern Estonia. They spoke the Uralic Livonian language, a language which was closely related to Estonian and Finnish. As of 2010, there was one person still living who was known to have learned Livonian as her mother tongue and approximately 30 who had learned it as a second language. This last native speaker of Livonian, however, died in 2013.
