Celebrate Bison Day by supporting the return of the buffalo
Buffalo fed and clothed America's people before this land was called America. Buffalo are part of America's iconic grasslands. Buffalo hold a special place in the cultures and traditions of Native American peoples of the Plains. And today, buffalo are getting some much-deserved and long-overdue credit for their place in America's past and present.

November 2, 2013 marks the second annual observance of National Bison Day and we at Native American Natural Foods want to take this opportunity to highlight an important organization working to bring buffalo back to Indian Country - The Tanka Fund.

The Tanka Fund was created through a partnership between Native American Natural Foods and Indian Land Tenure Foundation (ILTF) to provide a broad base of support for efforts to return buffalo to Native American lands. Many obstacles face Native American landowners in buffalo ranching, and the Tanka Fund at ILTF supports buffalo restoration with the goal to return the buffalo to the lands, diets and economies of American Indian people.

This special day is about more than just a Congressional declaration or a reason to reach out to you, our strongest allies, with news about it. Today is about recognizing - and celebrating - the importance of the buffalo to our nation and our people.

Join us in celebrating National Bison Day. You can honor the Day and support the Return of the Buffalo by donating to the Tanka Fund at ILTF. Make your contribution today!

Pilamaya,

Mark Tilsen
President
