Cecily Engelhart (Ihanktonwan-Yankton Sioux Tribe) from Greenwood, SD
Cecily Engelhart (Ihanktonwan-Yankton Sioux Tribe) from Greenwood, SD, stopped by our office for a visit. She is a Social Documentarian graduate student at the University of California, Santa Cruz and this is her first year in the two-year program.

Cecily is focusing on indigenous rights, sustainable agriculture as well as local and global food sovereignty. She even spent a year abroad in New Zealand on a scholarship where she studied the food and water rights of the Maori people.

I also gave her a brief tour of the Tanka headquarters and she also had a wonderful interview with our CEO, Karlene Hunter. I think it is amazing to see a young lady from South Dakota focusing on a world-changing subject and it will be wonderful to see Cecily's accomplishments in the future.

I hope you got everything you needed for your thesis, Cecily! And with the help from us at Tanka Bar, I hope this lands us an A+!
