YakamaInformation about the Yakama
The Yakama people were similar to the other native inhabitants of the Columbia River Plateau. They lived off the abundant salmon in the Columbia River as well as berries from the nearby mountains. In 1805 they were discovered by the Lewis and Clark Expediation where the Yakima River merges with the Columbia River.
Yakama is a northwestern dialect of Sahaptin, a Sahaptian language of the Plateau Penutian stock.
