The Tanka Fund is a one-of-a-kind South Dakota-based nonprofit corporation. They provide Native rancher-producers and consumers education and technical assistance designed to restore this essential source of protein to tribes and restore traditional regenerative agricultural practices amongst Native people. They focus on removing barriers for Native Tribes and rancher-producers to enter and husband buffalo and grass-fed beef to generate a source of superior, clean, high density, traditional protein to Tribes and to clients that will keep production and value added product dollars circulating in Indian Country. They are implementing a blended capital model that includes a nonprofit, a cooperative, and a for profit corporation to garner the money needed to become self-funding.
