Intertribal Agriculture Council

Billings, MT, USA mdi-circle-small


Racial Equity 2030 Challenge Finalist

The Intertribal Agriculture Council was founded in 1987 to pursue and promote the conservation, development and use of our agricultural resources for the betterment of our people.

Land-based agricultural resources are vital to the economic and social welfare of many Native American and Alaskan Tribes. The harmonies of man, soil, water, air, vegetation and wildlife that collectively make-up the American Indian agriculture community, influence our emotional and spiritual well being. Prior to 1987, American Indian agriculture was basically unheard of outside reservation boundaries.

Since that time, IAC has grown to prominence in Indian Country and among the federal government agencies and the agricultural field with which it works on behalf of individual Indian producers and Tribal enterprises. The IAC has, over the last three decades, become recognized as the most respected voice within the Indian community and government circles on agricultural policies and programs in Indian country.

Launched in October 2020 and sponsored by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, Racial Equity 2030 was a $90 million challenge to help build and scale actionable ideas around the world for transformative change in the social, economic, political, and institutional systems that uphold racial inequities. 1400 proposals were submitted to the competition and were evaluated using four criteria: whether the proposals were game-changing, equitable, bold, and achievable. Ten Finalists were announced in September 2021. Five Awardees were announced in October 2022: ActionAid, Communities United, Indian Law Resource Center, Namati, and Partners in Development Foundation.
