Indian youth will join First Lady at White House garden





Indian youth will join First Lady Michelle Obama at the White House this Friday as part of her Let's Move initiative.

The youth will help the First Lady harvest crops in the White House kitchen garden. They will also plant corn, squash and beans, otherwise known as the three sisters of Indian agriculture.

The group will be joined by Assistant Secretary Larry Echo Hawk, National Congress of American Indians President Jefferson Keel and NFL quarterback Sam Bradford, a member of the Cherokee Nation.

The First Lady's office officially kicked of the Let's Move! campaign in Indian Country on the Menominee Nation of Wisconsin last week.
