HARVEST PROGRAM

Hunting, Fishing, Traping, and Shellfish Gathering Harvest Program

The Tribe entered into a historic Memorandum of Understanding with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife on September 20, 2023.

After several months of collaboration to meet the requirements in this agreement, on April 14, 2024, a draft of Chapters 3-4 Hunting Fishing Trapping and Gathering Code was approved for first reading and was posted on the website and published in the May 2024 Newsletter. After hearing Membership concerns it was reposted on June 10, 2024, and per Council direction, the home page of the Tribe's website was redesigned to allow a special designated area for “Notice of Proposed Code Amendments” only, for Membership to easily locate. A text message was sent to every Tribal Member with a number on file on Friday, June 14, 2024, to inform them of the posting and direct them to the website’s new location.

Due to the wishes of the Membership, we have the goal to implement this benefit in THIS year's hunting and fishing season. We are pleased to report that Oregon Fish and Wildlife negotiations have been completed and at the recent Business Council Meeting on June 26, 2024, BOTH the Tribal Code, Chapter 3-4 and Hunting, Fishing, Trapping and Shellfish Gathering AND the Hunting and Fishing Regulations have been approved and adopted. We know this is just the beginning and as we move forward, edits may need to be made.

The Code adopted can be amended and we welcome any comments in writing so the Council can meet and discuss any suggestions made. You may submit written comments via email to jmiller@ctclusi.org or directly to Council via memberstocouncil@ctclusi.org

Program Managed by CTCLUSI Tribal Police Department with Consultation with the Department of Culture and Natural Resources
