Wynoochee Indian Language

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