Opinion: Tribes focus on the Farm Bill, Agriculture

Indian Tribes in the heartland have focused on the opportunities presented by the farm bill in a more organized way than ever before. To help Native American communities shape this massive legislation, the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community commissioned the Regaining Our Future report to analyze the risks and opportunities for Indian Country in the 2018 Farm Bill.

The report, authored by Janie Simms Hipp, Esq. and Colby D. Duren, Esq. of the Indigenous Food and Agriculture Initiative at the University of Arkansas, School of Law, is the most comprehensive analysis ever conducted on Farm Bill issues as they relate to Indigenous populations in the United States.
