The Yurok Tribe
The Yurok Tribe is the most populous tribe in California and prioritizes tribal sovereignty, reclamation of tribal land, stewardship, and protection of natural and cultural resources. The Tribe promotes Yurok culture, language, and religious beliefs for current and future generations.
The Yurok Tribe and California State Parks have collaborated and continue to work together to bring positive change within the state parks located within Yurok ancestral territory, including: the renaming of Sue-Meg State Park, entering into a Joint Powers Authority for the operation and management of the Stone Lagoon Visitor Center, the removal of the Madison Grant Monument within Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, and entering into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to establish a collaborative approach to the management, preservation, and interpretation of cultural and natural resources within the Yurok Tribe’s ancestral lands. It is the goal of both California State Parks and the Yurok Tribe to continue to work together to enhance experiences for tribal members, as well as the wider public, within Yurok Territory.
