USA: Dozens of Colorado Bison Return to Native Tribes – North America

(ANSA) — NEW YORK, March 16 — Dozens of bison in Colorado have been relocated to Great Plains Native American tribes in response to their pressure to demand management of the animals their ancestors had lived with for thousands of years. At the first ceremony, bison were given to Yoshi Oklahoma, Arapaho, Shoshone, and Wyoming.

For example, six animals went to the Yuchi who would form the nucleus of a new herd for people south of Tulsa, as explained by Richard Grounds of the Yuchi Language Project: The herd would be expanded over time, to re-establish a spirituality. And the physical bond was broken two centuries ago, when the Jutians were forced to leave their homeland. Another 17 bison will go to the Arapaho tribe, 12 to the Shoshone tribe, and one animal to the Tall Bull Memorial Council, which includes members from various tribes.

The move came two weeks after Interior Secretary Deb Haaland issued an order aimed at increasing the number of large herds on Native American lands. Halland also announced $25 million to create new herds, move more bison from federal lands to tribal lands, and forge new management agreements for bison with the tribes. (handle).
