Our Tanka team represented the company for another year at The National Center For American Indian Enterprise Development's National Reservation Economic Summit in Las Vegas. Our business manager said the best part of the event was meeting all of the Tanka fans and supporters of the product.

"There was buzz all over the conference about Tanka and how they see us everywhere," she said. "Everyone is very proud of our product and excited to see it growing."

Ms. Sherman also attended a session called "Community Development Financial Institutions: Increasing Native Economic Development Through Community Partners." The session was standing room only, she said, and featured our CEO Karlene Hunter and Doug Bystry, CEO at Clearinghouse CDFI which is one of our valuable Tanka partners.

"Everyone was very interested in funding for business and CDFI's and what the panel had to say about that as well as banking," Ms. Sherman said.

Several RES attendees enjoyed stopping by the Tanka booth. One of them included middleweight boxer 'Comanche Boy' George Tahdooahnippah. He even posed with one of our new Warrior Bars, a co-branded product with Onnit Labs.
