Native tribes from Canada, U.S. sign treaty to restore bison to Great Plains

BILLINGS, Mon. -- Native tribes from the U.S. and Canada signed a treaty Tuesday establishing an inter-tribal alliance to restore bison to areas of the Rocky Mountains and Great Plains where millions of the animals once roamed.

Leaders of about a dozen tribes from Montana and Alberta signed the pact during a daylong ceremony on Montana's Blackfeet Reservation, organizers said.

It marks the first treaty among the tribes and First Nations since a series of agreements governing hunting rights in the 1800s. That was when their ancestors still roamed the border region hunting bison, also called buffalo.

The long-term aim of Tuesday's "Buffalo Treaty" is to allow the free flow of the animals across the international border and restore the bison's central role in the food, spirituality and economies of many American Indian tribes and First Nations -- a Canadian synonym for native tribes.

This is actually a great thing. Sure the White Eyes don't like it one bit, it will be bringing back some traditions and thoughts they tried very hard to eradicate so the people would starve to death both physically and spiritually. The Nations finally getting together with this treaty will make us stronger, give the youth a direction to choose other than self destruction and it will help with the bringing back of the old ways. We had our identity stripped from us, now we are fighting to regain that which was stolen and then forced to be forgotten by those that survived the holocaust of the 1800's.

"White eyes" was the Native American for people of European descent, as they had pale blue eyes. My grandfather had the palest blue eyes I ever saw, in a black and white photo, they almost appeared white.

Bryant Redhawk, just so you know, this "white eyes" does not have a problem with uniting the bison herds and allowing the return of the old ways for your people. I wish the best for you and I hope that this brings a better life to those tribes in that area.
