     The Wallawalla were a semi-sedentary hunter/gatherer tribe.  They were originally located in Washington along the Wallawalla River and a short span along the Columbia River and the Snake River about the Oregon/Washington border.  They traded with the first Whites to arrive, but ultimately had conflicts and suffered from the later settlers.
