Overview

From 2015 to 2017, the Stoney Nakoda have conducted ceremonies regarding the signing of the Buffalo Treaty, the Bison Reintroduction, at Banff National Park and Elk Island National Park, with Parks Canada, and other First Nations. Although the bison reintroduction project did complete an environmental assessment, this does not reflect the cultural understanding of having bison on landscapes. The presentation will discuss this cultural importance, as well as recent research initiatives, and an update on the bison reintroduction project.
