Clatskanie Indians

First Noted by Expedition
November 1805

The Clatskanie were one of the many tribes inhabiting the Snake and Columbia River Basins when the Lewis and Clark expedition arrived in the winter of 1805.

Almost 50 years later there were only three men and five women remaining in the tribe, which had fallen victim to warfare and smallpox. The Clatskanie culture was also diluted as the dwindling tribe intermingled with other tribes.

Today the Clatskanie tribe is extinct.
