Description: 
Buffalo were central to Plains spirituality and wellbeing. Dreaming or having a vision of this sacred animal was a profound experience that resulted in the attainment of a guardian spirit. This experience still resonated with power even though shields were no longer needed for warfare at the turn of the 20th century.
