Judy this is really wonderful news. Thank you so much for sharing.
I really appreciated Tom Escarcega's thoughts:

" The Yellowstone animals will be "welcomed with prayers," said Tom Escarcega, one of a group of Assiniboine and Sioux tribal leaders who planned to escort the animals to Fort Peck.

"It starts to bring back our ceremonies that we kind of forgot," Escarcega said. "In our culture, we treat the buffalo as a people, and we're the two-legged nation. They deserve respect."
