Our Mission

To unite Upper Columbia River Tribes for the protection, preservation, and enhancement of Treaty/Executive Order Rights, sovereignty, culture, fish, water, wildlife, habitat and other interests and issues of common concern in our respective territories through a structured process of cooperation and coordination for the benefit of all people.

Protecting Our Ancestral Lands

The territory that UCUT protects, preserves and works to enhance includes some of the most valuable and diverse natural resources in our region from Washington, Idaho, Oregon, Montana and into Canada.


Our territories feature unique and stunning landscape including forested mountains, grass-covered hills, and river habitat like the great Columbia River, the Kootenai River, the Spokane River, Priest Lake, Lake Coeur d'Alene, and Lake Pend Oreille.
