Program Information

The Natural Resources Department has the oversight of the Forest, Fisheries, Fire prevention and Agriculture.

Our program provides seasonal jobs for approximately 10 to 15 Forestry Technicians a year. We also have a Tribal Youth Initiative that mentors and trains up to 6 of our Tribal Youth annually. We have an open view of the resources that our land provides. Our program is dedicated to providing a solid future for our children and the generations to come to have the same natural resources in their lives.
