The Warm Springs Indians are a confederation of tribes of central Oregon.
Tribes represented on the Warm Springs reservation include
Northern Paiute tribes.
Most of these bands were compelled to move onto Warm Springs from other locations in Oregon,
and they spoke different languages, so they mostly had to give up their disparate languages in order to survive together.
There are still some Tenino speakers at Warm Springs, and the tribe has recently been working to
revive the Kiksht dialect of Wasco.
