Chilluckittequaw Indian Tribe

The Chilluckittequaw were a small Chinookan tribe of Washington State. Their own language was never properly recorded, but was probably either a Chinook dialect or a closely related language; they were also users of the Chinook Jargon trade language that was prevalent in their area. The Chilluckittequaw do not exist as a tribal entity anymore. Most Chilluckittequaw descendants live among the Chinooks today.
