Lummi Indians. A Salish tribe on an inland from Bellingham Bay, north west Washington.  They are said to have lived formerly on part of a group of islands east of Vancouver Island, to which they still occasionally resorted in 1863.  According to Gibbs their language is almost unintelligible to the Nooksak, their northern neighbors.  Boas classes it with the Songish dialect.  The Lummi are now under the jurisdiction of the Tulalip school superintendent, Washington, and numbered 412 in 1905. Their former villages were Hutatchl, Lemaltcha, Statshum, and Tomwhiksen.  The Klalakamish, of orcas Island, were a former band.
