Halykwamai Indian Tribe

The Halykwamai Indians were a Yuman tribe of Arizona, relatives of the Cocopa and Kumeyaay tribes. 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.
