Wauyukma Indian Tribe

The Wauyukma Indians were a small tribe of Washington State, relatives of the Palouse. The Wauyukma language is no longer spoken, but is considered to have been a Walla Walla dialect. Like many other West Coast Indian tribes, the Wauyukma people were relocated to the Colville Reservation in Washington during the 1800's, where they merged with other native peoples and their languages rapidly vanished. Most Wauyukma descendants still live on the Colville reservation today.
