The bison was a gift of love from the Great Spirit to his red children. All parts of this wonderful animal were used, nothing was wasted. Hides were made into tepees, clothing, robes, and parfleches (rawhide bags), and the meat was their sustenance.

Growing bison herds, and the recent birth of a white buffalo, serve as a symbol of indigenous people’s endurance and strength to survive. In 2013, for the first time in US history, both the Congress and the Senate voted unanimously, for the bison to be officially named our “National Mammal”. Bison have unparalled historical, cultural, economic, and ecological significance to the US and Native Americans. “National Bison Day” is celebrated the first Saturday in November.
