Buffalo Spirit Animal

Buffalo Spirit Animal

What we have come to know as Buffalo here in America are technically not Buffalo but rather Bison. Referring to American Bison as Buffalo may have gotten started by French fur trappers with the use of the word “boeufs” which means ox.  True Buffalo are found in Africa and Asia. Because they are so closely related, Buffalo and Bison are mostly interchangeable in terms I’m going to use Buffalo in this video to refer to the American Bison.

The people here were living in not just cliff dwellings but also cave dwellings and they combined their building style with the existing canyon wall in a very ingenious way. Bandelier National Monument is located about an hour outside of Santa Fe.
