Tanka Fund is on a mission to bring buffalo back to Indian Country. We offer all people a way to participate in supporting the buffalo’s return! Tanka Fund’s mission is to direct funds from people like you who are stewards of the Earth, proponents of regenerative agriculture, and defenders of social justice to Native buffalo ranchers to support and sustain ranch planning, financing, and operations.


Tanka Fund provides funding directly to Native ranchers to establish new buffalo ranches or to support, expand, and sustain existing ranch operations.

Securing Capital

Tanka Fund assists Native buffalo ranchers in obtaining patient capital, grant and proposal writing, and with accessing the global market for bison.

Training and Technical Assistance

Tanka Fund procures expert assistance to advise Native buffalo ranchers on ranch planning, implementing and sustaining best ranching practices, and obtaining certifications that allow them to participate in the value-added bison markets.
