Excerpt from MSU April 17th Press release about the film: In 2012, a small herd of buffalo from Yellowstone National Park were transferred to the Fort Peck Reservation in northeastern Montana, marking the first time genetically pure buffalo had roamed that region in over 100 years. The approximately 45-minute documentary describes how the transfer took place from the near extinction of the buffalo to the agreements that brought them to the Fort Peck Reservation. It also highlights how Fort Peck is honoring and upholding the Buffalo Treaty, an agreement between various tribes seeking to celebrate their deep-seated relation to the buffalo and restore herds to the lands they used to roam.
