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