An environmental pledge

All of our tribal ancestral lands are held in trust by the tribe for future generations. We see the land as more than a resource – respect for the land is a sacred agreement linking our ancestors and generations to come. We have made a tribal-wide commitment to environmentally sustainable practices from our business enterprises to the tribal administration and clinic to our families, who are working to make their homes more energy efficient. We are proud recipients of local and national recognition for the tribe’s efforts on energy efficiency, resource conservation and environmental stewardship.

All new housing at Camp 4 will be constructed after careful planning and to the highest standards. Camp 4 lands will be subject to the rules and review of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corps of Engineers. Oversight of tribal land development through the Bureau of Indian Affairs and in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) is just as rigorous as would be through the State of California and in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
