From the beginning of their time, the Gitga’at people have existed in their territory, dependent upon its abundance and richness. The wellbeing of the Gitga’at community is intricately related to the health of their lands and waters and the abundance of resources therein. The Gitga’at are committed to an approach to land and marine use planning that reflects and emphasizes the need to sustain this relationship.

To act on these goals and objectives, the Gitga’at are working on a variety of analyses, resource planning, and negotiation initiatives, all geared toward developing and implementing land and marine use plans, new resource management strategies and new arrangements with governments and industry. These changes will allow the Gitga’at to establish cooperative resource stewardship and further develop their economy in a sustainable fashion to meet community needs and aspirations. Ongoing monitoring will help to develop new knowledge that will support these initiatives over time.
