Multnomah Indian Language
The Multnomah Indians were a small Chinookan tribe of Oregon, relatives of the
and speakers of a Wasco-Wishram dialect. The Multnomah no longer exist as a distinct tribe.
After a devastating epidemic struck their region, the surviving Multnomahs merged
into neighboring tribes like the Clackamas
and Wasco. Most Multnomah descendants
live on the intertribal Grand Ronde and Warm Springs reservations today.
