Our Company

Native American Natural Foods, LLC, is focused on creating a family of nationally branded food products that are delicious and that promote a Native American way of wellness that feeds mind, body, and spirit. Beginning with its first product line, which features TANKA BARS, TANKA BITES, TANKA WILD STICKS, and TANKA BUFFALO HOT DOGS, Native American Natural Foods provides a category of natural healthy choices in the marketplace that currently does not exist. By adding value to traditional Native food products, using modern scientific methods and the least amount of processing possible, Native American Natural Foods innovates value-added products for the U.S. consumer marketplace.

Founded in 2005 on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, owners Karlene Hunter and Mark Tilsen imagine a world filled with healthy foods that add to the restoration and preservation of our lands and ecosystem -- a world without the pain of starvation or obesity. The world they imagine embraces the lifestyle that Native American people lived just over a century ago.

The vision at Native American Natural Foods is not to go back to a traditional way of life but to bring the heritage of wisdom from the Native American traditional healthy lifestyle into the 21st century and into the lives of those who share that vision.
