“Become The Buffalo”

Post Inspiration: “Cows run away from the storm while the buffalo charges toward it – and gets through it quicker. Whenever I’m confronted with a tough challenge, I do not prolong the torment, I become the buffalo.” ~Wilma Mankiller (first female principal chief of the Cherokee Nation)

“Oh Great Tatanka, what would we do without your message, will, and strength to survive all things?”

Tatanka is a Lakota word meaning “Big Beast”. For the Northern Plains People Tatanka meant “life”. For more, see the Story Of The Bison. Photo taken during the Legion Lake Fire after all the buffalo in the area migrated south to Wind Cave National Park, SD – December 2017.
