The Makah are native North Americans who in the early 19th century inhabited Cape Flattery, Washington. According to Lewis and Clark, they then numbered some 2,000. The Makah are the southernmost of the Wakashan group, being the only member of the Wakashan group within the United States. Makah culture was fundamentally that of the Pacific Northwest Coast area. In 1855 they ceded all their lands to the United States except a small area on Cape Flattery that was set aside as a reservation. Today most of the 1,600 Makah in the United States live on the Makah Reservation; their main tribal income is from forestry.

Non-tribal members visiting the reservation are required to purchase a pass upon entering the reservation. Guests on official business are given a free pass.
