The Yakama Indian tribe is a Native American tribe located in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. They are part of the Yakama Nation, which is made up of 14 different tribes.
The Yakama people have lived in the area for thousands of years, and their traditional territory includes parts of present-day Washington state and Oregon. They have a rich cultural history, including a strong tradition of fishing, hunting, and gathering.
In 1855, the Yakama Nation signed the Treaty of Yakama with the United States government, which established the Yakama Indian Reservation.
However, the tribe has faced numerous challenges since then, including the loss of land and resources, and the forced assimilation of tribal members into mainstream American society.
Despite these challenges, the Yakama Nation has remained resilient and has worked to preserve its culture and traditions. Today, the Yakama Nation is a sovereign nation with its own government, laws, and institutions.
