Mission Statement

The Wildlife Program is responsible for ensuring the protection and preservation of wildlife resources throughout the aboriginal lands of the Coeur d'Alene Tribe. This is inclusive of management initiatives oriented towards both on-Reservation and ceded lands. Much effort is spent in promoting the Sovereignty and management perspectives of the Tribe at both local and regional levels to ensure that the wildlife resources that the Coeur d'Alene people are dependent upon for subsistence, religious, cultural, and recreational purposes are perpetuated for present and future generations. The program strategy is rooted in the protection and enhancement of wildlife habitats as a means of maximizing the potential of traditional lands to support the needs of various wildlife species as well as Tribal members.
