Colville and Palouse notes (part 6).
[Comment: An indication of the uncertain Palouse and Nez Perce boundary would be the linguistics of the area. Along the Snake River, upstream from Lyons Ferry for instance is the place of Coppei. I am told it is a Palouse word, referring to 'birth location.' Most of the other Indian names, and they were bestowed upon contact with the occupants of the area by the original white settlers, are Nez Perce, Patit, Pataha, Alpowa, Tucannon, Asotin etc."
