Native American Tribes Embracing Hemp Industry For Boosting Economic Growth
In the United States, Native American tribes live under sovereignty to the federal government, leaving community regulations up to tribal leadership.
The legalization of hemp brings a boost to the number of jobs and to the local economy for the tribes. Many tribes have already obtained approval from the USDA for beginning hemp production. The Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska got its certificate on Jan. 27, 2020. This allows the farmers to produce hemp after receiving permission from Iowa’s Industrial Hemp Department. Iowa plans to start with hemp and later expand to other markets, such as eggs, honey, and grass-fed beef.
With a very low per-hour rate, it is important to boost the economy. The tribe also believes that hemp will make the soil health better, allowing them to cultivate better. Blue Quisquis, a member of the San Pasqual Band of Mission Indians in San Diego, has been in the gaming industry for about two decades before he switched to hemp cultivation. He believes that cannabis can be used to build upon for other industries and has much in common with gaming.
Mood33 is a hemp-based beverage line that is working with supplier Evo Hemp to get its products from the Lakota tribe.

Crop type selection is completely up to the farmers and they are welcome to use any strains they want.
