I know of Chinook Jargon which was fairly widespread and Nootka
Jargon which appears to have had a very short lifespan. Chilkoot
looks like a Tlingit word and my tired recollection is that it
refers to a village and also a blanket style (don't hold me to that, its
been a long day). I used to specialize in NW Coast lgs in my first
grad student days and suspect I would have heard of it which is
not to say I know it all, I most assuredly don't.
There is an excellent Chinook Jargon web page and the language
is undergoing a mini-revival. You can find references to both
Jargons and a link from my Northwest Coast Anthropology and Linguistics

If its tourist season, why can't we shoot them?
