Taita Cushitic is an extinct group of the South Cushitic languages. It is believed to have been spoken by Southern Cushites from Ethiopia who in the third millenium BC began migrating southward into the Great Rift Valley. According to Derek Nurse Taita Cushitic belongs to the same extinct group as the South Nyanza languages.The evidence for the languages is confined to remnants apparently preserved in the Bantu Taita language and the oral history of the Taita people.
