To develop and sustain a Wildlife Management Program that addresses the on
Reservation and Treaty Territory Wildlife Management concerns of the Nez Perce
The basic goal of the Program is to support Tribal participation and
expression of concerns in any issue affecting the wildlife resources available
to the Tribe.
Additional goals are to persist in asserting sovereignty in reservation
wildlife management as well as co-management status for treaty territory
DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES
Program Services are largely tied to the funding available to the Tribe.
Most of the funds utilized by the Program have specific deliverables.
The P.L. 93-638 funding is the only funding available to address general
wildlife management concerns according to NPTEC direction.
The Wildlife Program, at appropriate times, delivers services directly to the
Tribal Membership such as when opportunities were available to send people to
Yellowstone to retrieve bison, or when the Tribe received birds for feather
distribution, or when there is a need to distribute information to the
Membership about hunting areas or state seasons. However, the majority of
the staff time is spent either working on contracted tasks, administrative
tasks, answering queries from federal/state agencies, responding to requests
either from NPTEC, Tribal Staff for support or analysis of issues.
