Farm Bill important to Indian Country

The economic and dietary health of Native Americans hangs in the balance with the 2018 Farm Bill, according to a new report commissioned by the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community.

The report, entitled Regaining Our Future: An Assessment of Risks and Opportunities for Native Communities in the 2018 Farm Bill, is the most comprehensive analysis ever conducted on Farm Bill issues relevant to U.S. Indigenous populations. The SMSC commissioned the report as an initiative of Seeds of Native Health, the tribe’s four-year, $10 million philanthropic campaign to improve Native nutrition and food access.
