Latgawa Indian Language
The Latgawa Indians are a small tribe of Oregon, relatives of the
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.
