Chilluckittequaw Tribe

Chilluckittequaw Indians (Chilû’ktkwa). A Chinookan tribe formerly living on the north side of Columbia river in Klickitat and Skamania counties, Washington, from about 10 miles below the Dalles to the neighborhood of the Cascades. In 1806 Lewis and Clark estimated their number at 2,400. According to Mooney a remnant of the tribe lived near the mouth of White Salmon river until 1880, when they removed to the Cascades, where a few still resided in 1895. The Smackshop were a subtribe.
