70 Indian Ag youth attend Historic Conference in Las VegasDecember 17, 2017
The 2017 IAC Youth Conference, held concurrently with the Intertribal Agriculture Council 2017 Membership Meeting was a monumental success. Over 70 students attended, representing 35 Tribal nations across the country to learn about Indian agriculture in a youth taught, youth led movement. They networked with their peers and select leaders about food sovereignty, the culture of feeding our own, creating opportunity and their role in the future of Indian agriculture.
The meeting wrapped up on a monumental note on Thursday with the IAC board, voting unanimously, to seat a Youth representative on the board. A youth council was seated earlier this Fall with representation across the 12 national BIA regions.
The students were selected to attend by writing an essay to answer the question “What does my community need in the Farm Bill?”
The next generation of Indian Agriculture is at the forefront of meeting America’s demand for food security. Our young leaders have been filling crucial roles at home such as producing the food that feeds our communities. Now, Indian Country relies on our youth to carry our message farther than ever before. Insuring a Native voice is heard in the 2018 Farm Bill is a critical concern for the Intertribal Agriculture Council, and we need your help in doing so.
