Akkala Sami is a Sami language that was spoken in the Sami villages of A´kkel and Ču´kksuâl, in the inland parts of the Kola Peninsula in Russia. Formerly erroneously regarded as a dialect of Kildin Sami, it has recently become recognized as an independent Sami language that is most closely related to its western neighbor Skolt Sami.

The last known speaker of Akkala Sami, Marja Sergina, died on December 29, 2003, and it is now extinct.[1] The language remains the most poorly documented of the Sami languages.
