By 1865, on the Northern Plains, the Buffalo were being wiped out by agents or those who sought to seek just the hides for profit. Nevertheless, it hurt the Sioux , Cheyenne and other Plains Tribes. They depended on the herds to sustain the people.
The spirit of the Buffalo continued and continues today. No one can take that powerful spirit away.
I depict this medicine Sioux warrior as one carrying the voice of Thunder. The one who sings loud Buffalo songs.
