Industrial Hemp 

EXCERPTS

” After doing research and noting the worldwide market for hemp, in July 1998, the Tribal Council approved ‘industrial hemp agriculture’ for the reservation. With demand high for the crop, three Lakota farmers, Tom Cook, his wife Afraid of Bear and American Horse grandson of Chief American Horse formed the Slim Butte Land-Use Association.[100] To emphasize the issue of Sioux sovereignty in land use, they publicly announced the first planting of industrial hemp seeds on April 29, 2000, on the 132nd anniversary of the signing of the 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty, which established the reservation. The Association believed production of industrial hemp-based concrete could help solve the severe shortage of suitable dwellings on the reservation, as it is a sustainable construction material, and work for the unemployed. Hemp can also be processed to yield oil for cooking and other products. . . . In August 2000 and July 2001, federal DEA agents destroyed industrial hemp crops on the Pine Ridge reservation.” . . . From “Pine Ridge Indian Reservation (Wikipedia)
