Bison Welcomed on American Indian Reservation

Accuse me of staring romantically at an idealized picture of what the American west was and of what it could be and you’d probably be right.  I had to share this story from the National Wildlife Federation:

THE BISON ARRIVED AFTER DARK on this blustery late-winter night at the Fort Peck Reservation in northeastern Montana, a road-weary herd of stubborn survivors and promising pioneers.

With the clang of a gate and the rumble of hooves on prairie grassland, 61 genetically pure Bison bison completed a long-awaited return to the Sioux and Assiniboine tribes.
