Whiskah Indian Language

The Whiskah Indians were a small tribe of Washington state, relatives of the Chehalis Indians and speakers of a Lower Chehalis language. They were also known as the Wishkah. The Whiskahs do not exist as a separate tribal entity today. The Whiskah tribe merged together with the Chehalis tribe, and most Whiskah descendants live on the Chehalis reservation today.
