Tanka Fund and Onnit share the story of returning the buffalo to Native lands

March 19, 2015

Tanka president Mark Tilsen with Joe Rogan, comedian and MMA sports commentator.

Our Tanka president Mark Tilsen represented the Tanka Fund to help celebrate the launch of Onnit products at Whole Foods Market. Onnit has been a fantastic retailer and product partner and invited the Tanka Fund to attend their launch during South by Southwest festivities at Whole Foods Market in Austin, TX.

The Tanka Fund is a national campaign by the Tanka Fund to return buffalo to Native American lands, lives and economies and Onnit has been a great supporter. Our authentic 7 x 7 foot hand-painted buffalo hide by Lakota artist Sonja Holy Eagle was on display during the event at Whole Foods. The Tanka Fund hide is traveling the country to engage the public in returning buffalo to Native peoples. Enter the free sweepstakes to win the hide at tankafund.org/win or text TANKA to 313131.

Below are photos from the recent event in Austin.
