Methow Indian Language
The Methow Indians are a small tribe of Washington, relatives of the
and speakers of an Okanagan dialect.
Like many other West Coast Indian tribes, the Methow people were relocated to the
Colville Reservation in
Washington during the 1800's, where they merged with other native peoples and their languages rapidly vanished.
Most Methow descendants still live on the Colville reservation today.
