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 website and feel free to contact us with any questions or suggestions.

Status of Pesticides in Indian Country Report
The TPPC has released its first Status of Pesticides in Indian County Report. 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.
