Nooksak Indians (‘mountain men’). The name given by the Indians on the coast to a Salish tribe, said to be divided into three small bands on a river of the same name in Whatcom County, Washington. About 200 Nooksak were officially enumerated in 1906, but Hill-Tout says there are only about 6 true make Nooksak. They speak the same dialect as the Squawmish, from whom they are said to have separated.
