Coushatta representatives meet U.S. Ag Secretary
Daily News Staff Report
On the heels of the inaugural Coushatta Tribe Agri-Business Marketing Conference in March, representatives of the Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana attended a luncheon, speech and reception with U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack at the University of Arkansas last week. Tribe leaders were able to meet and talk to Vilsack and hear him address a select group at the University of Arkansas’ Dale and Betty Bumpers Distinguished Lecture Series.
Earlier this month, the Tribe hosted Stacy Leeds, dean and professor of law at the University of Arkansas School of Law, for a special reception. Leeds was a speaker at the Agri-Business Marketing Conference and is the first American Indian woman to serve as dean of a law school. She is a member of the Cherokee Nation, as well as a noted expert on property, natural resources and American Indian law. She extended the invitation to the Tribe for the Vilsack event.
