The Loss and Return of the Buffalo

This iconic symbol of the American West was the source of life for Native people for tens of thousands of years. More 50 million buffalo were deliberately killed at the end of the 19th century, forcing our ancestors onto reservations and into dire poverty and ill-health. Today, with your help, we can change the course of history and build a positive, sustainable future for your grandchildren and ours like.
