Halykwamai Indian Tribe
The Halykwamai Indians were a Yuman
tribe of Arizona, relatives of the Cocopa and
They were also sometimes known as the Halyikwamai, Jallicumay, Quicama, or Quigyuma.
The Halykwamai no longer exist as a distinct tribe. Most of them are believed to have merged into the
Cocopa tribe, where their descendants remain today.
Their language was never properly
recorded, but was clearly closely related to Cocopa and Kumeyaay, and may have been a Cocopa dialect.
