The Rogue River Tribes are a confederation of tribes from three different tribal languages, Takelman, Shastan and Athapaskan tribes and bands. The original Rogue River tribe is that of the Rogue river Valley, the Takelma people. Rogue River came to refer to the confederation after a series of battles and wars where the tribes confederated together to fight for their sovereignty and survival. I have written a number of essays that describe some of the major changes and events involving the Rogue River Tribes. This page is a guide to following their history in somewhat chronological order.
