This weekend Chief Alfred and Kathy Red Cloud brought students from Pine Ridge’s Wolf Creek School out to visit with the “Tatanka Oyate” that were released June 2004 on the Red Cloud’s land near Slim Buttes on the Pine Ridge Reservation as part of Village Earth’s “Adopt-A-Buffalo Program“. Despite the drought, all the buffalo are doing extremely well and are growing at an amazing rate. They should give birth to their first young by spring of 2006.
