Taltushtuntude Indian Tribe (Taltushtuntede)
The Taltushtuntude Indians were a small Athabaskan tribe of
Oregon, relatives of the
and speakers of a related Athabaskan language.
They are also known as the Taltushtuntede or Galice Creek Indians.
Like many other West Coast Indian tribes, the Taltushtuntude Indians were relocated to the Siletz Reservation in
Oregon during the 1800's, where they were merged with other native peoples and their languages rapidly vanished.
The Taltushtuntude language is no longer spoken today, but the Athabaskan people of Siletz have been working together to revive
a mixed heritage language based on Tututni and Tolowa.
