Just days ago, American Indians of the Fort Peck Indian Reservation joyously welcomed 62 pure strain buffalo transferred from Yellowstone National Park.
A story on the event posted to this site earlier today quoted numerous sources — some Indians, some not — who saw the transfer as a long overdue restoration. Said Iris Grey Bull, a Sioux member from Fort Peck, “This is a historical moment for us. We’re rebuilding our lives. We’re healing from historical trauma.”
