The Native American story of the Buffalo Woman comes from the tribes who followed the buffalo herds on the Great Plains. The buffalo was the source of life for the people, giving them food, hides for robes and tipi covers.
The lives of both the buffalo and humankind were closely interwoven, and the story teaches that buffalo and people were related. When this story was related, it was not told simply for entertainment; it had power to strengthen the bond with the herds, and to encourage the herds to continue to give themselves so that the people could live. It was felt that retelling the story had power to bring about a change within each of us; that in listening we might all be a little more worthy of our buffalo relatives.
