This ancient legend tells how the buffalo became a sacred animal for the Cree people. “I will give them myself,” said Buffalo.
The largest land animal in North America once thundered across the Great Plains in numbers of 30 to 50 million. They provided shelter, food, clothing, tools, hunting gear, ceremonial objects and many other necessities for those who lived on the Plains.
The buffalo is honoured to this day, a reminder of life in harmony with nature as it was once lived.
