Cow Creek Band of Umpqua
Tribe of Indians

Umpqua refers to any of several distinct groups of Native Americans that live in present-day south central Oregon in the United States.

The Upper Umpqua tribe is represented as the Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Tribe of Indians. The tribe signed a treaty with the U.S. federal government on September 19, 1853. The Upper Umpqua was the first Oregon tribe to sign a federal treaty. The Cow Creek Band spoke the now-extinct Takelma language. The Cow Creek Band has a reservation near the modern-day city of Roseburg, Oregon.

The Lower Umpqua tribe is represented in modern times as one of the three Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians located on the southwest Oregon Pacific coast in the United States. They spoke a language close to Siuslaw.

Some bands of the Umpqua are part of the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon.

The Cow Creek Tribe now operates the Seven Feathers Hotel & Casino Resort in Canyonville.
