Board of Directors Secretary,
Cottage Grove, Wisconsin
Tatanka Luta’s mission is something that calls me into action, a way to fulfill on my own life, and way to share and have fun.” “It’s easy for me to relate to those I call family and now we have a way to really make a difference in the lives of children and each other.
Prior to joining the Board of Directors for Tatanka Luta, Eric apprenticed and worked as a carpenter and craftsman and went on to start his own business learning the values and skills to be able to provide beautiful shelters. He is currently employed with the City of Madison in the Office of Business Resources working with food vendors and local business. He has worked with people with disabilities and mental illness, continues to volunteer, and is proud to have taught environmental art and photography to children. He spent more than two years fostering a housing cooperative which recently created affordably housing for youth without housing. He has completed many courses in communication and leadership teaching him the value of listening and fostering leadership.
Eric is happily married to his better half Amy of 14 years, residing in Cottage Grove, Wisconsin.
