Satsop Indian Language

The Satsop Indians are a small tribe of Washington state, relatives of the Chehalis Indians and speakers of an Upper Chehalis dialect. The Satsops do not exist as a separate tribal entity today. The Satsop tribe merged together with the Chehalis tribe, and most Satsop descendants live on the Chehalis reservation today.
