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
Greetings and Welcome
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. Check out our website and feel free to contact us with any questions or suggestions.

Status of Pesticides in Indian Country Report
The TPPC released its first Status of Pesticides in Indian County Report in late 2020. The culmination of a multi-year effort, the report was prepared to provide a resource that will inform Tribes and the federal agencies that work with them about the major pesticide-related issues and concerns that affect Indian Country, and the steps that can be taken to strengthen tribal pesticide programs and ensure that the health and well-being of tribal communities and lands are protected. The TPPC will update this report periodically to reflect current pesticide-related issues facing Tribes.
