Luckiamute Indian Language

The Luckiamute Indians are a small tribe of Oregon, relatives of the Kalapuya Indians and speakers of a Kalapuyan dialect. They have also been known as the Lakmiut. Like many other West Coast Indian tribes, the Luckiamute people were relocated to the Grand Ronde Reservation Oregon during the 1800's, where they were merged with other native peoples and their languages rapidly vanished. Most Luckiamute descendants still live at Grand Ronde today.
