American Indian Foods (AIF) is a program of the Intertribal Agriculture Council that began in 1998 under contract with the USDA Foreign Agricultural Service. The partnership was developed as a platform for American Indian food businesses to showcase their products and share tribal cultures with the world.
American Indian Foods come from coast to coast in the United States and are grown on the pristine lands of Native American Nations or raised in their natural waters. Many of these products are still harvested in ways defined hundreds of years ago. Native American communities are a close knit group as many of them gather families and friends together annually to harvest, celebrate, and give thanks.
