Tiokasin Ghosthorse welcomes back Bryan Nurnberger. Bryan founded Simply Smiles, Inc., in 2003 and serves as the organization’s President. Bryan is also the founder of Connecticut's first Benefit Corporation, Simply Smiles Products Corporation.

In 2013, he was given the Lakota name "Cante Waste Wichasa," which means "Kind Hearted Man."
