The story of bison/human interaction is at least as old as the Ice Age cave paintings of Altamira in Spain and Chauvet in France. Even in those early times, bison sustained people with their gifts of meat and hide and connected them to a supernatural world. These themes of sustenance and spirituality were established when humans came to the Americas. The human bonds with buffalo—both economic and spiritual—pervaded the ancient worlds of America and the Eurasian steppes. In North America, bison and humans co-existed and interacted for millennia. Native stories and histories, and archaeological investigations provide insights into this long relationship. Immerse yourself in lecture, story, and a place where bison roam.
