Latgawa Indian Language

The Latgawa Indians are a small tribe of Oregon, relatives of the Takelma Indians and speakers of a Takelma dialect. They have also been known as the Upland Takelma or Walumskni. Like many other Oregon Indian tribes, the Latgawa people were relocated to the Siletz and Grand Ronde reservations during the 1800's, where they merged with other native peoples and their languages rapidly vanished. Most Latgawa descendants still live at Siletz and Grand Ronde today.
