Restoring a connection: relocated bison bolster tribes' ancestral ties to the animal
Bryan Warner watches bison in Bull Hollow, Okla., on Sept. 27. For now the Cherokee are not harvesting the animals, whose bulls can weigh up to 2,000 pounds and stand 6 feet tall, as leaders focus on growing the herd. But bison, a lean protein, could serve in the future as a food source for Cherokee schools and nutrition centers, says Warner, the tribe’s deputy principal chief. (AP Photo/Audrey Jackson)
