Native American Natural Foods
Launched in 2006 on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, Native American Natural Foods offers a family of nationally branded buffalo-based food products that are delicious and that promote a Native American way of wellness that feeds mind, body, and spirit. Based on a traditional Lakota recipe of dried meat and fruit called "wasna," our Tanka Bars, Bites, Sticks and Warrior Bars integrate our heritage with contemporary nutritional excellence. Wasna is still used today and passed down to our youth and used in ceremonies. Tanka Bars, Bites, Sticks and Warrior Bars are available at thousands of stores across the nation and online.
We are a certified Native American-owned company and a certified B Corporation and we are dedicated to creating healthy foods that add to the lives of our people and to the restoration and preservation of our lands and ecosystem.
"Tanka" is a Lakota word used in reference to delivering your best with all your heart, mind, body and spirit. It is the choices that you make and the actions that you take to be who you are. It is your ability Live Life Powerfully and to acknowledge "Mitakuye Oyasin" -- we are all related.
