Entiat Indian Language

The Entiat Indians were a small Salishan tribe of Washington State, relatives of the Wenatchee Indians and speakers of a Wenatchee dialect. Like many other West Coast Indian tribes, the Entiat 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 Entiat descendants still live on the Colville reservation today.
