The tribe has been the historical land manager of the Willamette Valley for centuries The native plants and animals are intrinsic resources to the tribe as they form the foundation to historic traditions and values.

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.
