Yakima - A tribe of Indians who lived on the lower course of the Yakima River in Washington.  Even as in the early days other tribes were included in the name Yakima, so today it is difficult to tell how many true Yakima live on the reservation of that name in Oregon and Washington.  They are farmers and stock raisers.  The name has been preserved in that of the river, a county and a town in Washington.
