American Buffalo or bison (which is separate from the European bison) as they are sometimes called, are symbols of the last remaining vestiges of wilderness that America has left. They once roamed the land from Canada to Mexico in herds numbering in the thousands if not greater. Now, they number in the hundreds of thousands, and can mostly be found in public or private ranches where they are raised for consumption or on wild life preserves or parks, like Yellowstone. But just because we’re eating them now (Mmm, tasty buffalo), doesn’t mean we don’t value them.
Concerted efforts are going into their preservation too, which is good, otherwise they would’ve been hunted into extinction by about the turn of the 1900s. As the aforementioned symbol, a rare white buffalo can be seen on the state flag of Wyoming, and even a New York-based NHL team, the Buffalo Sabres has a white buffalo as their mascot. But the white buffalo itself is so exceedingly rare, that maybe one in every million buffalo born is white. For Native Americans, this makes the white buffalo especially sacred (when compared to the regular buffalo, who were already highly prized), and a symbol to be given much respect and honor.
And now thanks to Fiesta, you can bring home this proud symbol of true American heritage home. At 13 inches from nose to tail, this soft cuddly plushie makes a great addition to any lover of Americana or just unique animals in general.
