For the Native Americans of the Great Plains and Western North America the Buffalo was the life blood of their culture both religiously and for subsistence. All parts of the Bison were used in some form or another. Dried buffalo meat mixed with nuts and berries was a primary food source. Buffalo bones were also carved to make knives, and boiled to make glue. Buffalo skin could be used to make tipis, clothes, moccasins, bedding, parflèches, saddle covers and water-bags. Buffalo sinews were used as bowstrings and thread.
The American bison, also commonly known as the American buffalo or simply buffalo, is a North American species of bison that once roamed the grasslands of North America in massive herds. On May 9th, 2016, President Obama officially named the American bison the national mammal by signing the National Bison Legacy Act.
