Erin Parker serves as the Assistant Director of the Indigenous Food & Agriculture Initiative at the University of Arkansas School of Law, where she supports the Initiative through program development, research and writing, and analysis of regulatory issues affecting Tribal governments, businesses, and producers. The bulk of her professional work centers on the tension between the tectonic plates of food & agricultural law and federal Indian law, and as part of this work, she is part of a team of Initiative attorneys developing a Tribal Model Food & Agriculture Code. She also trains young Native beginning farmers & ranchers on food systems and risk management issues. Erin hopes to increase her effectiveness as an educator for beginning farmers and ranchers through this workshop, and is happy to talk to anyone, endlessly, about pretty much anything to do with ag & food law.
