Mission Statement

Nez Perce Tribe Fish and Wildlife Commission will strive to ensure that the rights reserved under the Treaty of 1855, including the natural resources upon which these rights are inextricably linked, are protected, maintained, and enhanced in all areas or processes of natural resources management the Tribe is involved in at present and into the future. Our geographic focus will be to advance our sovereignty and management jurisdiction at all on-reservation, off-reservation ceded lands, and all “usual and accustomed” fishing, hunting, and gathering areas of the Tribe. The Commission will utilize traditional teachings, cultural values (including our tribal and personal history concerning this area, its resources, and the ethical obligations passed to us), along with contemporary resource management tools and concepts in an integrative approach to advance and maintain our way of life.

Fishing & Hunting Regulations
