The Klamath National Forest consults with tribes on a government-to-government basis about proposed Forest projects. Through this consultation, the Forest builds productive working relationships with tribal leaders, government officials, and resource managers.
The Forest consults with federally recognized Tribes that are culturally and historically affiliated with, and have ongoing interest in management of Klamath-administered lands. On the Klamath National Forest, the Karuk Tribe is consulted on Forest projects.
Karuk river ceremonial observances on the Klamath River are part of the Karuk World Renewal events which enhance and provide for the well being of the Karuk and the natural world. If you are planning a float trip on the Klamath River, please read the information on Karuk ceremonies and traditions and areas to avoid on Karuk Ceremonial dates.
