Economic Development Background

Our people still live off the land and we hunt for moose, deer, bear, caribou, mountain goats, and small fur-bearing animals. We set nets for salmon, white fish, trout, kokanee, spring salmon, and lingcod. We still go to our camp grounds in the summer time and gather food for our winter storage. We are open to development opportunities that do not compromise our traditional values.
