Agricultural Contractor in Billings, MT
IAC was established 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.

Membership dues for the coming year are due prior to the Annual Membership Meeting, regional caucuses and elections at the annual meeting. In order to vote on caucus issues and elections, a member Tribe must have their dues paid and a delegate in place at the Membership Meeting. Please join us in this effort on behalf of Indian People. The Intertribal Agriculture Council is a membership based organization.
