Standing Rock: Thousands of Wild Buffalo Appear Out of Nowhere
Buffalo appear at standing rock amidst the ongoing protest against North Dakota Pipeline. Native indian Indegenous people and activists were highly encouraged after wild Buffalo herd sighting.
Native Americans maintain a spiritual tradition with bison, believing that as long as buffalo — a gift from the Great Spirit — roam free and as long as the herds are bountiful, the sovereignty of indigenous people would remain strong.
Indigenous culture honors American bison (known as Tatanka Oyate, or Buffalo Nation) as a symbol of sacrifice, as the bison give their lives to provide food, shelter, and clothing through the use of their meat and their hides.

USA: Thousands march against the Dakota Access Pipeline in Washington DC
Thousands marched through Washington DC on Sunday, to protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline and express their solidarity with the indigenous people of the Oceti Sakowin Camp in Dakota.
Since it was approved in late July, the 1,886-kilometre (1,172 mile) pipeline has sparked outrage among Native American communities and locals. The project, which would cost around $3,8 billion (€3.3 billion), is expected to carry crude oil from the North Dakota region, north of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe’s lands, to South Dakota and Iowa to an existing pipeline in Patoka, Illinois, if completed.
The construction of the pipeline was initially halted by US President Barack Obama’s administration in September, but activists have voiced their concern that President-elect Donald Trump will revive the project when he takes over the office in 2017.

2 days ago Buffalo appeared at standing rock amidst the ongoing protest against North Dakota Pipeline. Native indian Indegenous people and activists were highly encouraged after wild Buffalo herd sighting.
This Golden Eagle landing definately more encouraging. Cause American Indians see the eagle as a sacred messenger that carries prayers to the Creator and returns with gifts and visions.
Freedom is vital to the survival of the eagle and this teaches us that all people must be free to choose their own paths; to worship as the Creator leads them; and to respect the freedom of others.
