     The Hoh were a sedentary coastal hunter/gatherer tribe located on the Hoh River, isolated in the rain forest on the west coast of the Olympic Peninsula.  They are closely related to the Quileute.  They had little White contact in the nineteenth century, and, as a result, few historical notations were made.
