Fotolk (Fotolk [voðolk]) is the sole surviving member of the Hemminorak family. It is spoken in isolated pockets in Kasiiralq and Fazulavaz by members of the Fotolk ethnic group.

It is widely considered to have a manually-encoded form, Manual Fotolk, although this may instead be a creole between a manual form of the language and one or more isolated sign languages.
