AICHO’s Food Sovereignty Director, Kayla Jackson attended the Intertribal Agriculture Council (IAC) Conference this December representing AICHO. IAC was founded in 1987 to pursue and promote the conservation, development, and use of our agricultural resources for the betterment of our people. IAC serves as the nation’s leading voice on Native agricultural policies and programs that revitalize and advance Native food systems and economic development throughout Indian Country. IAC’s programmatic offerings include the following: Legal and policy development, USDA technical assistance, Natural resources management, Domestic and international marketing support, Regenerative financing assistance, and Native youth in food and agriculture leadership development. This three day conference was full of networking and learning about new resources and opportunities AICHO can benefit from. The panels, sessions and discussions were essential and influential on the development of AICHO’s future projects and establishments.
