Alsea Indians (corruption of Alsi´, the aboriginal name). A Yakonan tribe formerly occupying a small territory at and about the mouth of Alsea River, western Oregon.  Little is known of the early history of the tribe of which there are now only a dozen survivors on the Siletz Reservation, Oregon.  According to Dorsey1 the following are the former Alsea villages:

Milhau (in letter to Gibbs) gave Neahumtuk as an Alsea village at the mouth of Alsea River, which has not been identified.
