Native American genealogy
The Whilkut Indians were a small tribe of Northern California, relatives of the
Hupa tribe and speakers of
a Hupa dialect. The Whilkut no longer exist as a distinct tribe. Suffering heavy losses
from colonial attacks, they merged together with their Hupa neighbors. Most Whilkut
descendants still live among the Hupa tribe today.
