The Ahantchuyuk Indians were a small tribe of Oregon,
relatives of the Kalapuya.
They were also known as the Hanchiuke, Ahántchuyuk,
Pudding River Indians, or
French Prairie Indians.
Like many other West Coast Indian tribes, the Ahantchuyuk Indians were relocated to the Siletz and
Grand Ronde Reservations
during the 1800's, where they merged with other native peoples and their languages rapidly vanished.
The Ahantchuyuk language is no longer spoken, but is believed to have been a Central Kalapuyan dialect.
Most Ahantchuyuk descendants live with other Kalapuya people at Siletz and Grande Ronde today.
