Buffalo Field Campaign

Report and Rationale

Dear Tribal Representative,

My name is James Holt, Buffalo Field Campaign board member, and Nez Perce tribal member. I send this letter as a request for your support. The plight of our relative Qolqaalx (Buffalo) in Yellowstone is known to us all. At this time, we have an opportunity to influence the disposition of critical bison habitat on National Forests in the region. We know the sacred relationship with the land and bison is paramount to Indian peoples. Buffalo Field Campaign also believes in the spirit of the buffalo. We strive to build unity in actions that secure the long-term viability of Yellowstone bison herds. Your support helps make this possible.
