Pataxó (Patashó), or Pataxó Hã-Ha-Hãe (Pataxó-Hãhaãi), is an extinct native language for Brazil formerly spoken by the Pataxó people of the Bahia region, and of Minas Gerais, Pôsto Paraguassu in Itabuna municipality. There is little data, but it appears to be Maxakalían. The 2,950 individuals in the Pataxó tribe now speak Portuguese instead, though they retain few Pataxó words, as well as some words from neighboring peoples.
