Native American Natural Foods helps announce funding for native communities
When a group of political leaders gathered in tiny Kyle, S.D., Wednesday, July 1, 2009, to announce $11.3 million in funding for distressed native communities, there was one business that all of them used to illustrate the project's potential.

Native American Natural Foods CEO Karlene Hunter and President Mark Tilsen Sr. was front and center when Sen. Tim Johnson, D-S.D., Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin, D-S.D., and Department of the Treasury's Community Development Financial Institutions Fund Director Donna J. Gambrell announced the awarding of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and CDFI monies to native communities across the country.
