The Chelan Indians are a small Salishan tribe of Washington State, relatives of the
and speakers of a Wenatchee dialect. They are also known as the Tsi-Laan or Chelanic.
Like many other West Coast Indian tribes, the Chelan people were relocated to the
Colville Reservation in
Washington during the 1800's, where they merged with other native peoples and their languages rapidly vanished.
Most Chelan descendants still live on the Colville reservation today.
