About the Owner


A Message from Megan L. Schnitker, Founder and Owner of Lakota Made LLC 

Mitakuye, čaƞte’ wašte’ nape čiyuzapi kšto. Ta Wa Paha Ota Wiƞ emakiyapi kšto, emataƞhaƞ Ta Asaƞpi Oyaƞke kšto.
My relatives, I greet you with a good heart and a handshake. My name is Many War Bonnets Woman (only immediate family members may address me by my Lakota name), and I am from Milks Camp, South Dakota.
I grew up in south central South Dakota and spent a majority of my life living in the state. My parents, Charles Wayne and Marla Bull Bear, provided me with a strong foundation of Lakota teachings and traditions in my childhood. They worked hard and pursued education to support my younger brothers and me. My mother has run her own grassroots 501c3 organization for as long as I can remember. Meanwhile, my father served as a tribal game warden, a tribal police officer, and a town officer for Winner Police Department. My father, Nača Chief Bull Bear, belongs to the Kiyaksa Band of Oglalla’s of Pine Ridge, South Dakota. He hails from a long line of traditional spiritual leaders and teachers.
I am honored and humbled to be part of such a traditional family.
