Kwalhioqua Indian Language

The Kwalhioqua Indians are a small tribe of Washington, relatives of the Clatskanie Indians and speakers of a Clatskanie dialect. The Kwalhioqua do not exist as a separate tribal entity today. The Kwalhioqua tribe merged together with the Coast Salish and Chinookan tribes, and most Kwalhioqua descendants live on the Nisqually and Shoalwater Bay reservations today.
