Native Prairie Announces New Partner in Research Hemp Subdivision

Native Prairie Announces New Partner in Research Hemp SubdivisionThe Native Prairie Research Hemp Subdivision announced today their partnership with The Northern Cherokee Nation. With a shared goal of finding ways to increase quality of life, reduce the impact on our natural resources, and utilize crops native to North America, Native Prairie and The Northern Cherokee Nation are eager to move forward.

The Northern Cherokee Nation is a non-profit organization and state recognized tribe composed of approximately 14,000 people of Cherokee descent. Most Northern Cherokee Nations are descendants of those Cherokees who did not emigrate into Indian Territory, some of which emigrated prior to the Trail of Tears when the Cherokees were beginning to be pushed west of the Mississippi.

A signing ceremony will be held at the August 24th Ag Classic Expo between the great Northern Cherokee Nation and the Native Prairie Research Hemp Subdivision. “Many of our perceptions and beliefs are in harmony with our native brothers,” said Bill Cook, Chairman of the Board of Native Prairie Research Hemp Subdivision. “A collaboration agreement on how to protect our environment and produce top quality products for human and animal consumption will be ratified.”

Whereas, research has shown that hemp production helps remove toxic heavy metals in the soil from years of mining and use of dry commercial fertilizers.

Whereas, Northern Cherokee Nation strive to protect and preserve the environment, so too does the Native Prairie Research Hemp Subdivision in their efforts to push the development of hemp and the many benefits it brings to both the health of people and the Earth.

Whereas, Daniel Cantrell with the Northern Cherokee Nation stated their desire to partner with Native Prairie because they share the same goals when it comes to sharing and caring for Mother Earth. Ways that will not damage the soil and or environment and still enable farmers to continue to get all they can out of the growing season and the usable land in order to supplement the needs of people of this great nation.

The Ag Classic Expo will take place on August 24 both virtually and in person. To register for this event, go to www.agclassicexpo.com. You can also call (816) 773-6018 or email rsvp@agmaxx.com.
