“Where the Buffalo Roam, No More.”
For thousands of years the American Bison roamed the plains of North America. Where ever it went the American Indian was close behind. They depended upon the Buffalo for their food, clothing and housing. They hunted for survival not for sport. The white buffalo was so rare it was considered sacred and was part of their Creation Story that included the White Buffalo Woman. When the Europeans immigrated to North America they realized that the best way to take care of the “Indian Problem” was to wipe out the buffalo. And so they did. I’ve often wondered what it would be like to see a herd of these magnificent creatures so I decided to make my own buffalo herd.
