The economy of the Plains Indians was based on this animal. It's been estimated that 60 million buffalo roamed North America around 1850. By the early 1900s, less than 1,000 buffalo remained. Due to recent conservation efforts, the buffalo is making a come back today.
There are many legends of marriage between humans and buffalo, and the Lakota People received the Pipe and other sacred ceremonies from White Buffalo Calf Woman, who took the form of a rare sacred white buffalo and promised to return. In recent years, several white buffalo calves have been born.
As an animal totem, the turkey is called the "giveaway eagle" or the "life giver." It is associated with shared blessings, harvest, fertility, grounding and self-sacrifice.
