Intertribal Agricultural Council promotes farming

The Intertribal Agricultural Council held a conference in Billings, Montana, to promote Indian farming and agriculture.

The council says Indian farmers have lacked representation at the national level despite a long agricultural tradition. Most of the foods people eat today were first cultivated by Native peoples in the Americas.

The group is supporting American Indian Foods, a company that sells Indian foods. The conference was held for buyers from United Kingdom, Japan and Canada.
