Tanka participates in reservation-based school health fair in Allen, SD

October 17, 2013

Lucille and Samuel Has No Horse enjoy our new Apple Orange Peel Tanka Bars at the health fair at American Horse School.
For the second time this year, Tanka Bar participated in a Health Fair at American Horse School, located in Allen, SD, on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

I ran our booth this time to provide information about our company and provide samples of our multiple products. Tanka was among several other health organizations there to inform adults and children about healthier living.

In the morning, mostly mothers with small children visited the booths and received information from us and tried our samples. It was the first time some of the smaller children ever tried buffalo. One fair attendee came back for more because her kids really liked it.

In the afternoon, I was visited by some of the older students as part of their class. They all had notebooks and took down our information. They came with questions, too, such as "What kind of degree do you need to work at the Tanka Bar?" and "What kind of work do you do for the Tanka Bar?' and "What is the Tanka Bar?"

The whole lot of students liked our table -- I think it was the samples. Some of them had jerseys on so I asked them if they had a football game. They were playing a school from Martin so if they won, I hope it was because of the Tanka Bar!

From all of us at the Tanka Bar, thank you American Horse School.
