The Ulkatcho Nation upholds the land and resource management principle of“Yun Ka Whu’ten,” which means “taking care of,” and is reflected in their relationship to their lands.

Traditionally the Ulkatcho people lived nomadically, utilizing the seasonal resources on offer throughout their territory. This tradition of seasonal harvesting trips is still practised to a certain degree today.
