Galice (Nabiltse, Applegate Creek Indians)
Galice-Applegate was an Athabascan language once spoken on the Oregon coast
by the Taltushtuntede (Galice Creek) and Dakubetede (Applegate Creek) bands.
It may have been most closely related to Tututni.
Like many other West Coast Indian tribes, the Taltushtuntude and
Dakubetede Athabaskans were relocated to the Siletz Reservation in California during the 1800's, where they were merged with other native peoples
and their language rapidly vanished. Few records of the Galice-Applegate language remain.
