Come see us at the 2022 Gathering July 17 to 19 at the Hardrock in Tulsa
The Indigenous Production Trade Alliance
Alliance members are diversified farmers and processors; Millwrights and Craftsmen; Science and Ag Educators; Agribusiness, Biotech, and Engineering Professionals; American and European Agronomists; and leading Genomics researchers – allied to bring Hemp back to the top of the list of multi-use, renewable and sustainable resources produced in the world. For businesses and entrepreneurs, our primary aim is to highlight emerging market opportunities and challenges in Cannabis and Hemp and examine implications across the supply chain.
Multi-National Hemp Supply Chain and Workforce Development Program
The core of the emerging industrial hemp industry is driven by a desire to disrupt the status quo of how industry has traditionally operated. Hemp industry drivers are motivated by the abundance of applications for industrial hemp that can create new jobs, eliminate, or significantly reduce our dependence on fossil fuels or other non-renewable resources, and provide a range of ecological benefits in the process. Additionally, plant driven economies can return power to community and regional networks that are often dependent on national and international supply chain models. To change the status quo, development of these new localized circular economies will need to include the underserved and marginalized communities that have been blocked in the past from leadership roles in industry by corporate nepotism.
Focused on facilitating community-based programs, and solving challenges related to agricultural opportunities in Native American communities, has partnered with multiple universities in emerging Crops, soil crop sciences to grow, analyze, soil water remediation phytoremediation carbon sequestering, and demonstrate varieties of industrial hemp for grain and fiber.
Research ongoing since 2018 is currently taking place on superfund sites, land grant research facilities, underserved and Tribal colleges, private farms and farms located on tribal lands around the country. In conjunction, these organizations will work together to provide educational and technical assistance to farmer cooperators throughout this 10-year project.
The Indigenous-led soil and water in-situ remediation via application of biochar and crop production program Industrial pollution disproportionately impacts underserved tribal farmers and communities. The negative environmental and social impacts of mining, manufacturing, and commodity agriculture are well documented. Contaminated water and land disproportionately impact underserved farmers and communities - including reduced soil and water quality for human consumption and agricultural use, poor health outcomes for Indigenous, black, and low-income communities, displacement from sacred lands, and inhibited Indigenous farmers from utilizing lands for traditional fishing, hunting, and grazing.
