In the Native American tongue Lakota, a language still to be heard today in the Dakotas, the American buffalo is called tatanka, or ‘he who owns us’. For the people of the Northern Plains, this animal provided life; without the tatanka there was no life. Daily life revolved around sacred references to the beast which provided clothing, meat, housing and tools for the many communities across the Great Plains. Before white man ventured westwards around 1800, it is estimated that there were some 30-35 million bison in the northern hemisphere of the New World.
