Buffalo Eating from Mother Earth

The Buffalo is and was extremely important to the Native American culture because they used every piece of the Buffalo. It’s ironic those rocks by the tree start to form a circle, which in the Native American culture, is a symbol of Unity and life. We are all connected to Mother Earth according to the Native American’s in the Circle of Life. Even the buffalo is getting his nourishment from Mother Earth, and will eventually pass it on. It’s the Circle of Life at its finest.
