U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich has heard the stories about people passing off agriculture products as Native American made.
Now he, U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján and other lawmakers want to find out how widespread the activity is.
“I’ve been working on this issue for five years now,” Heinrich told the Journal. “Tesuque Pueblo was the first group to approach me about this. They have harvest seed that’s been around thousands of years. It’s only selectively bred in the Southwest.”
