At only 70 calories per serving, Tanka Sticks deliver a slow, powerful protein punch by mixing two primary ingredients: low-fat, high-energy American buffalo meat and tasty cranberries. This combination is no accident because Tanka products are based on wasna, the original Native trail food that combines meat with fruit.

We're convinced our Ancestors knew what they were doing. In times when Native Americans sustained themselves with wasna and other traditional foods, heart disease, diabetes, or obesity were virtually unknown. Tanka products honor their wisdom. Like all Tanka products, Tanka Sticks are 100% Natural, low-fat, gluten-free and hormone-free and they're guaranteed shelf-stable for up to 18 months. Named for the Lakota word for "outstanding" or "great," Tanka Sticks offer powerful protein for your life journey in a snack so good, you can Live Life Powerfully!


Smoky and slightly sweet, Tanka Sticks Slow Smoked Original are tender and delicious. When we started working on the recipe for Tanka products, we were trying to meld authentic Native ingredients and flavors into a real food that would honor our past, yet fit how we live today. We started with the traditional recipe for wasna and thought to modernize it. We tried all sorts of ideas to improve on wasna, but each time we added something to the mix, we went further away from what we intended. It could not be improved! We came full circle to see that the traditional flavors of meat with fruit were perfect. Tanka Sticks in Slow Smoked Original feature Buffalo, Cranberries and 100% Indian-grown and harvested Minnesota cultivated Wild Rice. Our Wild Rice is non-GMO, and contains no artificial flavors or colors. Wild Rice is a whole grain that is high in fiber, antioxidants and phosphorus. Whole grains also help to fight off cancer, diabetes and heart disease. This unconventional combination of meat, fruit and wild rice makes the smoky-sweet Tanka Sticks a little crunchy with a slightly nutty flavor. They are simply great.
