Career opportunities with IAC
The Intertribal Agriculture Council is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that was established in 1987. For more than 25 years, the Intertribal Agriculture Council has been recognized as the most respected voice within the Indian community and government circles on agricultural policies and programs in Indian country. The Intertribal Agriculture Council is headquartered in Billings, Montana and has regional offices throughout the country, namely in the 12 designated BIA regions. The Intertribal Agriculture Council has worked to build opportunity for Indian agriculture producers with an eye towards true sovereignty and self-sufficiency in Indian Country by recapturing our ability to feed ourselves. Many times this work has been carried out by extremely limited number of staff. Native American Agriculture Fast Track Funding has made an organization-wide effort possible to capitalize on an opportunity to build our capacity on a grander scale.
