The First Foods Upland Vision

First Foods have sustained tribal people since time immemorial and the relationship between First Foods and the Tribes is essential to the ongoing culture of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR). The First Foods serve a fundamental role in the health, well-being and cultural identity of the Tribes. In 2007, to convey the important role of First Foods to the Tribes, the CTUIR’s Department of Natural Resources (DNR) adopted a mission based on First Foods ritualistically served at tribal meals.

The Umatilla River Vision

The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR) has adopted a mission based on First Foods ritualistically served at tribal meals (Figure 1). This framework for natural resource management seeks to reflect the unique tribal values associated with natural resources and to emphasize ecological processes and services that are undervalued by westernized Euro-American natural resource strategies.
