The Sanpoil (or San Poil) is one of 12 aboriginal Confederated Tribes of the Colville Indian Reservation. The name Sanpoil comes from the Okanagan [snpʕwílx], "gray as far as one can see". It has been folk-etymologized as coming from the French sans poil, "without fur". The Yakama people know the tribe as Hai-ai'-nlma or Ipoilq. The Sanpoil call themselves Nesilextcl'n, .n.selixtcl'n, probably meaning "Salish speaking," and N'pooh-le, a shortened form of the name. The Sanpoil had a semi-democratic system of government with various chiefs representing each community within the tribe. Heredity was not a requirement for chiefs. In later years, United States government officials began recognizing one chief at a time.

  • Die Sanpoil (historische Selbstbezeichnung Sinpoelihuh, heute Nesilextcl’n oder kurz N’pooh-le) sind eine der 12 Gruppen, die zu den als Indianerstamm in den USA anerkannten Confederated Tribes of the Colville Indian Reservation in Washington gehören. Sie lebten ursprünglich am namengebenden Sanpoil River, der in den Columbia mündet. Sie zählen kulturell zu den Binnen-Salish und sind nahe mit den Nespelem verwandt, die wenige Kilometer weiter columbiaabwärts lebten. Unter Skolaskin, einem Propheten, leisteten sie Widerstand gegen Missionierung und Eingliederung in das heutige Colville-Reservat. Heute sind die Sanpoil weitgehend mit den übrigen Colville-Stämmen vermischt, ein eigener Stamm existiert nicht mehr. (de)

In later years, United States government officials began recognizing one chief at a time. The last four officially recognized chiefs of the San Poil Tribe were Que Que Tas (b. 1822-d.1905), his son Nespelem George (b. 1863-d. Jan. 29, 1929), Skolaskin, and Jim James. The mother of Que Que Tas was a woman chief who met Lewis and Clark on the great plateau when they came through on the Pacific Northwest Expedition. (en)
