Spirit Animal – Apacheria Gravel

White Bison

To Native American Indians, a White Bison calf, is the most sacred living thing on earth. The White Bison calf is a sign to begin life’s sacred loop. Native American Indians (some) say the birth of a White Bison calf is an omen because the birth takes place in the most unexpected places. The birth, of a White Bison calf, is sacred with-in Native American Indian communities, because it brings a sense of hope and is a sign that good times are about to happen. The early Apache inhabitants of the South West USA were nomadic people. Some ‘groups’ roamed as far south as Mexico. The Apache were primarily hunters of the Bison but they also practiced limited farming. Bison roamed south in the winter and returned to the north in the summer. The Bison were nomadic and present in vast areas of the Western USA - Primarily the great plains (north to south) and further to the west.

Species of Bison (Buffalo): Plains Bison, Wood Bison, European Bison (Lowland and Mountain)
