As reported in Sioux City News:
“Winnebago, Neb. (KTIV) –
The president and CEO of Ho-Chunk, Incorporated is taking part in talks on food and farm at the White House. Lance Morgan has been invited to the Rural Council Native American Food and Agriculture Roundtable Discussion taking place at the White House on Wednesday.
Ho-Chunk is the economic development corporation owned by the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska.
The talks are chaired by U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and are focusing on issues including how to foster food and agricultural opportunities for Native Americans. In particular, they’ll discuss ways the Obama Administration may be able to reduce barriers and encourage food and agricultural economic development.
Last July, Morgan was one of 18 people from across the country who were invited to share their ideas directly with President Obama.”
