About

The Intertribal Agriculture Council is a non-profit corporation, founded in 1987. Its membership consists of all federally recognized Tribes, including the Alaska Native villages.

After and in-depth study of the Indian Agricultural sector, Congress mandated the creation of an entity with the sole charge of working to ensure the Indian use of Indian resources. The Intertribal Agriculture Council has been actively working towards this goal ever since.

The Office of Tribal Relations is responsible for government-to-government relations between USDA and tribal governments.

The collaborative efforts of these organizations have resulted in a network of regional offices (“the Network”) to provide technical assistance and outreach to Indian producers and Tribes.

Trained to guide you through the regulations and processes of Federal Agencies, the Network can assist with everything from financial planning, to crop insurance, to conservation practices.
