Mical Indian Language

The Mical Indians were a small tribe of Oregon, relatives of the Yakama Indians. Like many other West Coast Indian tribes, the Mical Indians were relocated to the Cowlitz Reservation during the 1800's, where they merged with other native peoples and their languages rapidly vanished. The Mical language is no longer spoken, but is considered to have been a Yakama/Sahaptian dialect. Most Mical descendants live at Cowlitz today.
