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.
