THE YUROK WAY
The Yurok (Oohl) Tribe is California’s largest Native American Tribe with nearly 6,500 enrolled members. We have long been celebrated as great fishermen, eelers, basket weavers, canoe makers, storytellers, singers, dancers, healers, and strong medicine people. As stewards of the land, our way was to never overharvest but to always ensure the sustainability of our food supply for future generations. When our guests adventure the Yurok Way they leave a positive impact long after their visit, helping our community thrive.
We welcome you to be our guest and to acknowledge this land as sacred to us all. Please refrain from traveling into unknown backcountry and adhere to the advice of your Yurok Adventure Guides.
Stay on the trail! Keep our wildlife WILD and observe in a non-invasive way. Respect our waterways, plants, and animals that have sustained our people for generations.
When planning your adventure in Yurok Country, prioritize supporting or buying local tribal-owned goods and services.
