Jutean-Garuhish Creole (Jutean-Garuhish Creole: Tavï Önäkiä ër, IPA: [tə'vy ɒ'ɾaçja øɾ]) is a Jutean-based creole, that arose via the contact between jutean immigrants to the island of Onakia, and the native garuhish population. Most of its vocabulary originates from Jutean, whilst the grammar is mostly that of Garuhish. This creole is a peculiar case, as it is comprised of two {not quite yet} members of the same language family, Saru-Asuran.

It is the native language of the inhabitants of the island of Onakia, where its presence outweighs that of Modern Garuhish. This is the veryday language in literature, schooling, business and entertainment on the island. However, everyone speaks Modern Garuhish as a second language taught in schools, as it is the main language for official documents, and the predominant language on the island of Akuvi, which contains the rest of the country's population.

Much like their jutean counterparts, the inhabitants of the island of Onakia are pacifists and have a more rustic, natural drive and feel to them, compared to the rest of Garohe. They are great writers, especially in areas such as poetry and several genres of literature. They are in favor of technology and scientific advancements, so long as they do not greatly damage the evironment, or destabilize the ecosystem.
