About Bison Range Restoration
In 1908, the federal government established the National Bison Range in the middle of our treaty-reserved home, the Flathead Indian Reservation, on land taken without our consent. The bison herd there descends from a free-ranging Reservation herd started by Tribal members in the 1800’s when plains bison were near extinction.
We are award-winning natural resource managers and it is time to restore the Range to federal trust ownership for us so we can continue to manage the buffalo and other wildlife there.
It is time for Congress to pass Bison Range Restoration legislation.
