Farm Bill

July 15, 2017

Regaining Our Future – Indian Country Farm Bill Report

“Much like the 2014 Farm Bill, which was projected to spend $956 billion over a 10-year period, the 2018 Farm Bill will be one of the largest non-defense funding authorizations to be considered in the history of this country. Since the Intertribal Agriculture Council’s inception, we have struggled to rally the support of tribes to effectively advocate for greater Native inclusion in previous Farm Bills. This document will serve as a new foundation for our ongoing efforts, working in partnership with the Indigenous Food and Agriculture Initiative, the SMSC’s Seeds of Native Health campaign, the National Congress of American Indians, and the Intertribal Timber Council to ensure well-crafted, effective, and thoughtful agriculture and nutrition policy; and a soapbox from which tribal voices can be heard in creating of that policy.”
