Kikiallus Indian Language (Kik-ial-lus)

The Kikiallus Indians are a small Salishan tribe of Washington state, most closely related to the Skagit tribe. Most Kikiallus descendants live together with other Washington Coast tribes on the Swinomish and Tulalip reservations. The Kikiallus were speakers of a Lushootseed Salish dialect. The Kikiallus dialect is no longer spoken today, but some young people have been working to learn the Salish language again.
