Native American Tribes Nations and Confederacies: Colville

Colville, an indigenous people of North America, whose language belongs to the Salishan branch of the Algonquian-Wakashan linguistic stock, and who were once one of the largest Salish tribes, were reduced to a meager few hundred by 1872.

They were placed on a reservation in North Washington and since that time have significantly increased, so that by 1990 there were 7,140 Colville in the United States. Many still live on the Colville reservation.
