Chinook Indians, A former distinct and interesting nation in the Northwest. They once inhabited the country on each side of the Columbia River from the Grand Dalles to its mouth. The Chinooks proper were on the north side of that stream, and the other division, called Clatsops, were on the south side and along the Pacific coast. Broken into roving bands, they began fading away, and the nation has become almost extinct; and their language, corrupted by French and English traders, is almost obliterated. There are a very few of them in the State of Washington.
