But it turns out even a bad buffalo burger is still pretty good….
Neat article from a Canadian producer about our continent’s buffalo/bison heritage.
Why most Indigenous North Americans’ ancestors revered the beast. Pretty damn useful! But I’m surprised the National Bison Assn. didn’t produce a basketball-styled “NBA” T-shirt like Rez Dog’s “Native By Ancestry” one!
“Bison bison,” eh? I can visualize the ad campaign, like “Pizza pizza”! A few years ago I read that it turns out bison meat may be what the Doctor Upstairs ordered for Native diabetes….
