Tribes urge passage of bill that would help move excess Yellowstone bison to Indian lands

indian tribal representatives testified before a Congressional subcommittee on Tuesday in favor of legislation that seeks $14 million in grants and cooperation from the federal government to restore bison to tribal lands.


“Adoption of the Indian Buffalo Management Act will create a permanent program within the Bureau of Indian Affairs and specifically authorize an annual appropriation,” said Ervin Carlson, president of the InterTribal Buffalo Council and a member of Montana’s Blackfeet Tribe.
