Since time immemorial, the Tribe has been the historical land manager of the Willamette Valley. The native plants and animals are intrinsic resources to the Tribe as they form the foundation to historic traditions and values. Although Tribes were removed from their ancestral homelands, people never lost their connections to place. Today, the Tribe continues land management practices both on and off Tribal lands throughout the Willamette Valley. A look into past, present, and future landscape management describes how traditional practices are not relics of the past, but are reflections of today’s cultural values.
