The Next Yellowstone: The Buffalo Is A Symbol of God

Bison were nearly exterminated from the West by white settlers and the U.S. government almost two centuries ago. It was a concerted effort to rid the  region of tribes.
“The buffalo to the Indian is a symbol of God. They knew if they took away our main food source – our main symbol of God – that we would be, we would be rendered to literally nothing.”
But now bison are making a comeback in Montana with the help of some of the world’s richest people.
