First Nations seek free-roaming bison herds

Efforts are underway to increase the number of free-ranging bison in Western Canada and Montana.

Signatories to the 2014 bison treaty, which includes numerous First Nations, are working to establish regions where bison can roam and where native connections with the iconic species can be re-established.

Leroy Little Bear, a scholar integral to formation of the bison treaty, said such a region is close to establishment by the Blackfeet Nation in northern Montana near the Canadian border at Chief Mountain.

As well, Banff National Park recently acknowledged the one-year anniversary of establishing a bison herd within its boundaries. That herd is expected to roam free in 2019.
