The buffalo people have always stood among our Indian people, from the beginning of time. They clothed us, they fed us. And they gave us inner strength. They've supported us in many ways. And the people have always respected the sacred buffalo people.
I was taught respect. Respect for yourself, respect for your siblings, for your brother and sisters, your clan, and that includes animals. I was taught that when the first Creator made the animals- he made the earth first of all, and put the animals on it- that he put some of his spirit in the animals .
They're created with this energy force, that life that keeps us existing. They have that same energy force. And people talk about a "sixth" sense. I believe that the animal world live in it.
