Over 100 protestors were arrested today at Standing Rock by police in riot gear. As police and protestors were at a heated stand off, thousands of Buffalo appeared. With a renewed spirit the protestors made battle cries. Awe inspiring the sacred Tatanka stampeded across the plain showing their support for the Standing Rock cause.
Many Indian people see the return of buffalo as a positive sign. According to Lakota leader and prophet Black Elk (1863-1950), when the buffalo return, the “Sacred Hoop” will be mended and Indian nations will become strong again. Working together with Native American Natural Foods and many other partners throughout Indian Country, we hope to build broad support for this vision so we can help to bring renewed life and strength to buffalo-based Indian communities.
