Okwanuchu Indians. A small Shasta tribe formerly occupying the upper part of McCloud river, California as far down as Salt Creek, the upper Sacramento as far down as Squaw Creek and the valley of the latter stream. Their language is in part close to that of the Shasta proper, but it contains a number of totally distinct words, unlike any other surrounding language.
