Welcome to the Miluk.org Web site.

On a day in 1953, Laura Hodgkiss Metcalf was interviewed by Morris Swadesh and asked to translate English words and some short sentences into Milluk.  In the tape-recorded part of the interview, she said 284 different Milluk words.  She is remembered by Coquille Tribal members as Lolly Metcalf.
