ChehalisInformation about the Chehalis
The Chehalis language belongs to the Salishan family of languages among Northwest Coast indigenous peoples. Like many Northwest Coast natives, the Chehalis relied on fishing from local rivers for food and built plank houses (longhouses) to protect themselves from the harsh, wet winters west of the Cascade Mountains. The Chehalis people settled on their current Chehalis Reservation land along the Chehalis River in 1860.
