Do you mean languages of India, or Native American (Indian) languages?

There are approximately 296 spoken (or formerly spoken) indigenous languages north of Mexico; South America has a linguistic diversity rivaled by only a few other places in the world with approximately 350 languages still spoken and an estimated 1,500 languages at first European contact.
