Tribal Environmental Plan

Tribal Adaptation Plans
The Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians

"Today, the Confederated Tribes of the Coos, Lower Umpqua, and Siuslaw Indians possess a small reservation of 6.12 acres near Empire. We currently hold approximately 547 acres of land, 153 acres of which are held in trust and 388 acres of which are in the process of being transferred into trust status.... Our Tribes continually strive to increase our land base in hopes of acquiring a significant amount of our ancestral lands to establish a Tribal forest, where we can invoke our ancestor’s traditions of sustainable harvest. In doing so, we hope to preserve, protect, and enhance our environment, community, and culture." This Tribal Environmental Plan was developed by the Environmental Protection Division within the tribe's Natural Resources department. The Plan outlines the structure and priorities of the Tribe concerning their environmental, traditional, and cultural resources.
