Our current US culture is so hurried that building and sustaining healthy communities is difficult. But we must or we shall perish. I will spread the word about your products and work in the hopes that others will be touched and help.

How wonderful, I have always had great admiration for the Native Americans, the situation they were placed in and help being denied for centuries. When Americans went to other countries to try and stop the 'ethnic cleansing ' didn't they realize they had done the same thing in their own country and it is still going on. I wish all of the Native nations the best in thier efforts and will pray and hold them in my heart as long as I am on this earth. Mauri

I don't know if it is Lakota or not, but I learned at one time that to some 'wakan tanka' was a term used for the great spirit. and that in that tradition was a story about the people coming up to earth on the back of a turtle. and that 'wakan tanka' can mean great spirit and turtle at the same time and I love that creation story so much and choose to believe it is my own although I only have a little Shawnee and Welsh and German. For me Tanka is the great oneness!

Tanka to me is finding an elder who speaks Truth and then lives it in the face of others.

Tanka means to me to be able to eat what I enjoy without fear of being poisoned by trash chemicals and additives. I gave up processed meats for a month and my hypertension dropped to nearly nothing.

How are the tanka slaughtered? With a mobile slaughter truck? I don't want to eat the meat of animals which have been driven live on trucks after having lived all their lives in the free.

Hi! I love your bars! As an avid runner and healthy eater, this bar is perfect for my active lifestyle. I am also the Natural Products Buyer here at Ballinger Thriftway in Seattle, Washington and just brought the bars in to my store. This is definitely one of the top new items on my list in 2010. I hope to sell many boxes! Do you know who your broker is out here in Seattle? I'd love to get a demo going.

Beautiful teachings and language.
Blessings of peace, happiness, radiant health and wellbeing for all peoples. I hope we have an indigenous woman president in America someday for the healing of nature and all life. First Peoples are deeply rooted in the balance and reciprocal relations between people and nature.

Yes, Larry. Wasna is similar to pemmican. However, the Lakota traditionally make it with choke cherries. Thanks so much for your support! Wopila

I enjoyed talking with Eugene on the phone today ... then I went to the web site .... I am but a poor white human being who has admired the Lakota culture and its people for years ... I had the privilige of meeting Floyd Westerman and coming to know him and consider each other friends ... I struggle with learning the Lakota language ... I can speak but very little and understand MORE than I can speak ... alas there are so few Lakota Oyate here in Wisconsin ... but I shall keep trying ... am enthused about trying your samples and becoming a event seller for same .... Pilamaye for what you are doing and for your product. I read the bars are combined with cranberries ... does this mean it could be considered a kind of PEMICAN????/ Larry
