President Bill Clinton will deliver the opening address, via a special videotaped message to leaders of Indian Country participating in the American Indian Sustainability Conference, September 25-27 at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa.

The leaders are assembling to explore how modern organic agriculture and renewable energy technologies, combined with traditional meditation techniques and natural medicine practices, can be used to build healthy, sustainable American Indian communities.

The speakers will hold a news conference on Friday, September 25, 11 am (US CDT), at Maharishi University of Management, Dalby Hall, in Fairfield, Iowa. The news conference will also be broadcast live on the Internet at www.AmericanIndianSustainable

A key feature of the weekend event, according to Prosper Waukon, a hereditary leader, Thunderbird Clan, Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska, is a five-point plan for sustainability, developed by the Hocak Elders Council, Inc., of the Winnebago Reservation. The plan includes the scientific knowledge and techniques to:

* Dramatically improve academic performance and reduce the stress and violence that permeate impoverished Indian communities

* Prevent and reverse diabetes, which strikes 80 percent of Native Peoples, through a comprehensive program for stress reduction, healthy diet, and lifestyle changes

* Generate clean energy and economic self-sufficiency for American Indians by harnessing Nature's wind and solar resources

* Provide healthy, nutritious food and economic self-sufficiency for American Indians through the establishment of organic agricultural greenhouses

* Safeguard the precious land, language, and culture of American Indian tribal communities, which are the foundation for systemic change
