Sakizaya (3067-ais) = Endangered (100 percent certain, based on the evidence available) (The Sakizaya people who live in the cities generally don't teach children their heritage language. As for people who still live in the Sakizaya tribes, only parents who strongly identify themselves as the Sazakiya pass down the heritage language. Sakizaya is only predominantly used in the traditional ceremonies.)
