For approximately 3 to 8,000 years to the middle of the 1900s, a Native American population inhabited the Tualatin Valley. The Atfalati were a dialect group of the Kalapuyan language family. Kalapuyan consists of three regions: Northern Kalapuya (a.k.a. Tualatin-Yamhill), Central Kalapuya (a.k.a. Santiam—Santiam River), and Southern Kalapupya (a.k.a. Yoncalla—southwest Oregon, around the Umpqua River).
