Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians

With their ancestral lands spanning more than 20 million acres from the Pacific Coast to the Cascade Range, the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians is one of the most diverse confederations on a single reservation in the United States.

It comprises more than 30 bands, including the Clatsop, Chinook, Klickitat, Molala, Kalapuya, Tillamook, Alsea, Siuslaw/Lower Umpqua, Coos, Coquille, Upper Umpqua, Tututni, Chetco, Tolowa, Takelma, Galice/Applegate and Shasta. Historically, the communities operated independently, rooted to their place with diverse landscapes and languages, yet twined together by broad networks of trade and kinship.
