Recently, BirdRattler led a community development planning effort creating the Blackfeet Agriculture Resource Management Plan, the first in-house indigenous agricultural plan in the country. In 2018, BirdRattler addressed the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues about the Blackfeet ARMP, a presentation that was so successful he was invited to return to address the U.N. General Assembly. The annual Berger Memorial Lecture honors the memory of MSU benefactor Phyllis Berger. It is offered each year at MSU by a nationally recognized Native American, Alaskan Native or Native Hawaiian scholar, artist or leader speaking on Native history, cultures or contemporary issues of interest and importance to both Indian and non-Indian people.
