Tagish is an endangered Northern Athabaskan language spoken by the Tagish people in the Yukon Territory in Canada. It may be extinct; in 2001 there was only one elderly fluent speaker left.

Tagish is closely related to Kaska and Tahltan. Although listed as distinct languages, the three might better be considered varieties of the same language.
