Two Buffalo Calves Find New Home on First Nation

The Sioux Valley Dakota Nation will be home to two buffalo calves, donated by the Assiniboine Park Zoo.

Mayor Sam Katz was on hand Monday to make a presentation with the certificate of health to the buffalo to representatives of the First Nation. One of them is a sacred white buffalo, which holds a strong place in the spiritual culture of many First Nations.

The zoo’s curator, Dr. Bob Wrigley, was also on hand and received the gift of a sacred quilt, along with the Mayor.

Sioux Valley Dakota Nation is located about 45 km west of Brandon. photo
