Tanka CEO to receive empowerment award in August
We are excited to announce that Karlene Hunter, Native American Natural Foods CEO and co-founder, is a 2014 Women Empowering Women for Indian Nations (WEWIN) honoree. The organization works to provide knowledge, support and resources to native women in order to achieve success in their personal and professional lives.

Ms. Hunter will receive her award during the 10th Annual WEWIN Conference on August 18-20, 2014 at Green Valley Ranch Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. Ms. Hunter is a member of the Oglala Sioux Tribe and has spent more than 25 years working on educational and economic development on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. She launched Native American Natural Foods with business partner Mark Tilsen in 2007 to produce Tanka Bars, a bison and cranberry protein bar.
