Yucwmenlúcwu (Caretakers of the Land)
Yucwmenlúcwu (Caretakers of the Land) is a cultural and natural resource management company that provides a complete range of environmental, archaeology, and forestry services.
Yucwmenlúcwu is the Secwepemctsin word for ‘Caretakers of the Land’—representing the Splatsin People’s commitment as stewards of Secwepemcúl̓ecw (Shuswap) and beyond. It is our deep respect and connection to the land that guides our innovative approach to forestry, archaeological, and environmental projects from concept to completion with industry-recognized standards at every stage.
Our team consists of highly skilled professionals and certified technicians, as well as a number of industry-leading firms, who see themselves as partners with clients in resource management and sustainable development for the greater good of generations to come. We balance conservation and economic development through innovative and practical solutions.
The foundation of our approach
“The Creator, in giving the land to the people, required the people to look after the land, the animals, the plants, the water and the air. The Splatsin people are inseparable from the land. It is this deep sense of responsibility that engenders the heartfelt need to be stewards of the land and resources of Secwepemc’ulucw. We will balance conservation and utilization of our resources in a sustainable manner for current and future generations.”
