Twana Indians. A Salish division living along both sides of Hoods canal, west Washington. The name is said to signify ‘a portage,’ the portage referred to being that between the head of Hoods canal and the headwaters of Puget Sound. According to Eells there are three bands, the Colcine, Skokomish and Tulalip. From the name of one of the bands all of them are sometimes called Skokomish. Population, about 265 in 1853. They are probably the Skokomish of the Indian Office reports, numbering 203 in 1909.
