Native American Natural Foods, LLC, is focused on creating a family of nationally branded food products that are delicious and that promote a Native American way of wellness that feeds mind, body, and spirit. Beginning with its first product line, which features Tanka Bar™, Tanka Bites™, Tanka Wild™ and Tanka Dogs™, Native American Natural Foods provides a category of natural healthy choices in the marketplace that currently does not exist. By adding value to traditional Native food products, using modern scientific methods and the least amount of processing possible, they innovate value-added products for the U.S. consumer marketplace.

Mark Tilsen is President of Native American Natural Foods. A recipient of numerous marketing awards, most recently, Mr. Tilsen and Lakota Express were featured as the lead story in the Mal Warwick Associates newsletter, Successful Direct Mail, Telephone and Online Fundraising.

A lifelong supporter of Native American causes, Mr. Tilsen began working as a volunteer in 1973 for the Wounded Knee Defense Offense Committee, which his parents co-founded. Since that time, he has honed his skills coordinating awardwinning, database-driven direct marketing campaigns that have raised more than
$25 million for Native American educational and environmental organizations. He also serves on the Board of the Pine Ridge Area Chamber of Commerce, the first reservation-based Chamber of Commerce in the United States.
