A complete listing of all the Indian villages, towns and settlements as listed in Handbook of Americans North of Mexico.

Dakubetede. A group of Athapascan villages formerly on Applegate cr., Oreg. The inhabitants spoke a dialect practically identical with that employed by the Taltushtuntede who lived on Gallice cr. not far from them. They were intermarried with the Shasta, who, with the Takilman, were their neighbors. With other insurgent bands they were removed to the Siletz res. in 1856.

Dalles Indians. The Chinookan tribes formerly living at The Dalles, Oreg., and on the opposite side of Columbia r. While tribes of other stocks, notably Shahaptian, frequently visited The Dalles during the summer, they were not permanent residents. Of the Chinookan tribes the Wasco were important, and the term is sometimes limited to that tribe. (L. F.)

Des Chutes. A loosely defined Shahaptian group living formerly on and about Deschutes r., Oreg. The term probably included remnants of several tribes. The name has passed out of use, and the Indians, if any survive, are probably on the Warm Springs res., Oreg., under other names. (L. F.)

Duldulthawaiame (village where there are plenty of humming insects). A former village of the Mishikhwutmetunne on Coquille r., Oreg.
