FFA Celebrates Native American Heritage

Full Native American Convention Session

The 2011 National FFA Convention featured a celebration of our Native American heritage. The celebration paid tribute to the rich ancestry and traditions of Native Americans, especially those in FFA, agriculture and agricultural education.

The celebration featured displays of Native American culture on the national convention’s main stage. It also included a roundtable discussion for FFA members, advisors and staff and members of the Native American community, including Janie Simms Hipp, senior tribal advisor to the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture and the director of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Office of Tribal Relations.
