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