Skaddal Indians. A tribe numbering 200 persons, found by Lewis and Clark in 1806 on Cataract (Klikitat) river, 25 miles north of Big Narrows, in the present Washington, and mentioned by Robertson in 1846, under the name Saddals, as numbering 400. They subsisted by hunting deer and elk, and traded with the Emeeshur and Skilloot for prepared fish. Classed by Mooney as a division of the Pisquows living about Boston creek and Kahchass lake, at the head of Yakima river.
