GREETINGS AND WELCOME TO THE TPPC WEBSITE
Did you know that tribal pesticide programs were some of the first tribal EPA programs, dating back to the 1970’s? Tribes have always been interested on the impact of pesticides to our health, our food, and our cultural heritage. The Tribal Pesticide Program Council (TPPC) is comprised of over 30 Tribes nationally who are committed to raising pesticide related issues to the national stage. Check out our new website and feel free to contact us with any questions or suggestions. —Fred Corey, Aroostook Band of Micmacs | TPPC Chairman
