After nearly 200 years, the Yuchi Tribe of Oklahoma reconnects with bison


One of the 35 Denver Mountain Park bison stands in a corral as it waits to be transferred to representatives of four Native American tribes and one memorial council so they can reintroduce the animals to tribal lands March 15, 2023, near Golden, Colo. Five of the bison went to the Yuchi Tribe of Oklahoma.

Tribal members say the new herd will strengthen ceremonial practices and connect them not only with the animal but also with other Indigenous nations.
