Bison Skull Mountain

MOUNTAIN OF BISON SKULLS: This historic photo from 1870 shows just how brutally efficient European settlers were in nearly wiping out the American bison. The two men are literally standing on tens of thousands of bison skulls from the once mighty herds of the Great Plains. The bison were not only seen as impeding development, their slaughter was also used to weaken Native American resistance to American expansionism since many tribes depended on the bison for food and culture.

It's a sobering reminder on the 40th Anniversary of the Endangered Species Act why we still need laws protecting our wildlife and why the restoration of the bison to the Great Plains is so symbolic for Native Americans.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this picture is worth many thousands of bison. This photo from the 1870s shows a man proudly standing in front of a mountain of tens of thousands of bison skulls - an iconic American species that was systematically slaughtered by the millions as European Americans settled the west.

The US Army actively endorsed the wholesale slaughter of these animals for two main reasons: to remove any competition with cattle, and to starve Native American tribes who greatly depended on the bison for food. Without the bison, the resisting tribes of the Great Plains would either be forced to leave or die of starvation.

More than a century after this dark period in our history, the bison is making a comeback. After living on the brink of extinction, this American icon is slowly but steadily returning to the Great Plains - one baby bison at a time. You can watch a video of how Native American communities and conservation groups like Earthjustice are fighting to bring back the bison on our website: http://ejus.tc/Ovv8lV

Lightning Medicine Cloud, Sacred White Buffalo, Killed and Skinned
May 4, 2012

"According to a Fox News report, the extremely rare and sacred white buffalo born last year has been found dead and skinned along with its mother.

Lightning Medicine Cloud, born May 12, 2011 on a stormy night at the Lakota Ranch in Greenville Texas, was a natural white buffalo—an extremely rare occurrence, happening an estimated once per ten million births. In June, a naming ceremony attracted over 2,000 visitors to the ranch, and a report on the proceedings cited beliefs held by some Lakota that the calf was the third white buffalo ever, and the first male in 150 years. Such a white buffalo is tied to the story of White Buffalo Calf Woman, and is the most sacred animal, perhaps the most sacred thing on the planet, to the Lakota people."
