Indian Youth to Harvest and Plant with First Lady in White House Garden


Indian youth will join First Lady Michelle Obama at the White House this Friday to promote her new campaign Let’s Move! in Indian Country (LMIC).

The youth will help the First Lady harvest crops in the White House kitchen garden, as well as plant the three sisters: corn, squash and beans. The group will be joined by Assistant Secretary Larry Echo Hawk, National Congress of American Indians President Jefferson Keel and quarterback Sam Bradford for the NFL’s St. Louis Rams, also a member of the Cherokee Nation.

LMIC debuted on the Menominee Indian reservation in Wisconsin last week.
