The Wind River Native Advocacy Center is holding its annual meeting in partnership with the Wind River buffalo restoration initiative on December 30th. Along with a buffalo tour, the meeting will include discussion about healing from historical trauma and land restoration through buffalo reintroduction.
Sign up for the buffalo tour begins at 11:15 and ends at 11:45 and the meeting will start promptly at 12pm.
Patti Harris is heavily involved with restoring the buffalo to the Wind River Reservation. She says that the group is eager to get others involved.
“We are always accepting members and our website will be launched the first of the year for folks to sign up,” Harris said. “Participation is instrumental and there will be many opportunities for folks to engage themselves and build healthy relationships with all that surrounds us.”
Harris also says that bringing the buffalo back has had a personal impact on her.
“I can only speak for myself, but bringing buffalo back has introduced me to a part of myself that I didn’t know was there,” she says, “I feel strong.”
To become a member is $10 a year for adults but anyone under the age of 18 can join for free.
