From farming and ranching to nutrition programs and forestry, more than 80,000 individual Native producers contribute $3.5 billion to the American agriculture industry.


#NativeAgvocates are Tribal leaders and producers with unique perspectives and voices who support policy changes that would positively impact Indian Country, such as strengthening tribal self-governance, allowing Tribes to manage nutrition programs, investing in economic development opportunities in rural communities and much more.
