Whilkut Tribe

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.
