About the Tribe
The Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Indians occupied the watershed of the North and South Umpqua Rivers. They spoke Takelma, a language in the Takelman-Kalapuyan division of the Penutian language stock. After American settlers entered their area they signed a peace treaty, but many were forced into hostilities in 1855 and in the following years some were removed to the Grand Ronde Reservation, while others hid out in the hills. Descendants of this latter group form the core of the tribe today.
