Stewardship is the careful, responsible management and supervision of something entrusted to one’s care. The Native value,
Haa Shuká | Íitl’ Kuníisii | Na Hlagigyadm (Our Past, Present, Future) guides Sealaska's land management.
Haa Shuká requires us to care for, manage, and protect the natural resources that all of us need, while ensuring these resources will be viable for future generations. Sealaska’s land stewardship is guided by our Native values that require us to balance cultural, economic, environmental needs.
We draw upon solid research and traditional knowledge for decisions on timber harvest, stream production, maintaining water quality, habitat management, forest regeneration, and soil production.
