Sacred Buffalo People (1992)

About the Film

The buffalo, or American bison, was once a vital and integral part of the culture of the Plains Indians, centering a spirituality that honored all living things. Sacred Buffalo People uses history, dance and folklore to illuminate that relationship. The restoration of the buffalo, a native American species nearly driven to extinction, parallels the resistance and cultural resilience of modern Plains Indian people as they renew their ties with this venerable and magnificent animal.
