Wenatchee Indian Language
The Wenatchee Indians are a small tribe of Washington state, relatives of the
and fellow speakers of the Columbia-Wenatchee language.
Like many other West Coast Indian tribes, the Wenatchee people were relocated to the Colville Reservation in
Washington during the 1800's, where they were merged with other native peoples and their languages rapidly vanished.
Most Wenatchee descendants still live on the Colville reservation today.
