Kwaiailk Indian Language

The Kwaiailk Indians are a small tribe of Washington, relatives of the Chehalis Indians and speakers of an Upper Chehalis language. The Kwaiailks do not exist as a separate tribal entity today. The Kwaiailk tribe merged together with the Chehalis tribe, and most Kwaiailk descendants live on the Chehalis and Cowlitz reservations today.
