Senijextee Indians. Significance unknown. Also called:

  • Lake Indians, a popular name for them because they lived on the Arrow Lakes.

Senijextee Connections. The Senijextee belonged to the inland division of the Salishan linguistic stock, and were most closely connected with the Sanpoil.

Senijextee Location. On both sides of the Columbia River from Kettle Falls to the Canadian boundary, the valley of Kettle River, Kootenay River from its mouth to the first falls, and the region of the Arrow Lakes, B. C. The Lake Indians on the American side were placed on Colville Reservation.
