Northern Voices: Red Lake Buffalo Project

Red_Lake_Buffalo_Project_2_medium.jpg

The Red Lake Nation has been working on a project for a few years now, bringing buffalo to the area. And in September 2020, buffalo arrived from Wind Cave National Park. Today on Northern Voices, we’ll hear how the Red Lake Buffalo project is growing, and how one particular young buffalo went on an adventure. Cherylin Spears is the project coordinator for Red Lake Economic Development and she shares what’s happening on the expanding 80 acre area that’s currently home to seven buffalo, with more to come.
