Puntlatsh Indians. A Salish tribe on Baynes sound and Puntlash river, east coast of Vancouver Island. In 1893 they numbered 45; in 1896, the last time their name appears in the Canadian Reports on Indian Affairs, the “Punt-ledge, Sail-up-Sun, and Comox” numbered 69, since which time they have apparently been classed with the Comox. The Puntlatsh dialect embraces the Puntlatsh, Saamen, and Hawahwatl.
