Nespelim Indians. A Salish tribe on a creek of the same name, a north tributary of Columbia River, about 40 miles above Ft. Okinakane, Washington.  Ross speaks of them as one of the Okinagan tribes, while Winans classes them as part of the Sanpoil.  The latter two together numbered 653 on Colville Reservation, Washington, in 1906.
