The IAC Rege[N]ation Pledge and Seal is exclusively available to Native American and Alaskan Native agriculturalists -- from farmers, ranchers to harvesters and foragers, who pledge to:
The seal and pledge elevate the story of Native American and Alaskan Native agriculture and environmental stewardship, while honoring traditional, cultural, and Native-led agricultural wisdom.
- work in tandem with my animals, land, water, and crops to develop a mutually beneficial relationship with them in-tune with the environment and self.
- have a genuine connection with the ecosystem and the citizens of my Tribal, local, and global community that promotes its greater wellbeing.
- promote the renewal of ancient, Native-led wisdom in my agricultural endeavors that returns us to the type of practices that have been regenerative in nature for generations to come.
Approved Rege[N]ation participants will be evaluated annually by IAC to review the producer’s effectiveness to replace or eliminate synthetic and industrialized inputs with natural-based methods and/or traditional agricultural practices specific to the Tribal ag producer. IAC will also review contributions made towards improving the outcomes for land, water, community, and other ecological systems.
