IAC’s 30th Year – Where We Go From Here

February 7, 2017

 

The Intertribal Agriculture Council was founded in 1987 to pursue and promote the conservation, development and use of our agricultural resources for the betterment of our people. Prior to 1987, American Indian agriculture was seldom heard of outside reservation boundaries. Since that time, IAC has grown to prominence in Indian Country and among the federal government agencies and the agricultural field with which it works on behalf of individual Indian producers and Tribal enterprises.

Join us, in our 30th year, as we continue to promote the Indian use of Indian resources and connect producers with federal agencies to maximize resources for tribal producers. Contact your IAC Regional Technical Assistance Specialist or make plans to attend an event in your region.
