Culture & Heritage Department

Past and Present Tribal Elders, such as Irwin Weiser, Celia Langel, Neva Eggsman, Reid David, and many more, have helped the Tribes Culture and Heritage Department throughout the years. Their guidance and teachings are invaluable to our people. We respect our Elders and value their wisdom today and forever.

The Culture and Heritage Departments programs are designed to protect, preserve and enhance Klamath, Modoc, and Yahooskin traditional cultural values. Programs and projects are developed to meet the social, spiritual and cultural needs of the Tribes, and includes language instruction, Tribal ceremonies, Culture Camp for Tribal youth and gathering excursions for all Tribal members. The site protection program component provides protection to ancestral and sacred sites and landscapes in cooperation with federal, state and local land management agencies, private developers and land owners. The Culture and Heritage Department is assisting in designing a Tribal Museum and Interpretive Center that will one day ensure that the richness of Tribal culture will sustain Tribal identity for all future generations.
