Tatum Ward

Office Assistant | 605-301-0522

Tatum is an enrolled member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe and has resided there her whole life. She grew up on her family's second-generation ranch in the Dewey County area and has always loved the lifestyle that comes with being a ranch "kid." Tatum is a first-year cattle owner and has been actively competing in rodeos since she was about 10 years old. She loves spending time with her family, friends, and animals. Tatum looks forward to working with Akiptan and being apart of the change and growth for Native Agriculture as a whole.
