For many Native Americans, the restoration of buffalo/bison is as much about healing people and reviving our culture as it is about healing the land. Bison once roamed the US prairie in millions, and had a close affinity with Native populations who used them for sustenance, health, homes, preservation of ecosystems, etc. After colonists moved in, many of them were killed for sport, or even intentionally to subjugate Native populations. There are several efforts ongoing in the nation to improve bison population and ‘rewild’ them by slowly introducing packs into the wild. This has been done successfully in Montana and Oklahoma.
