The Big Horn Bison Ranching System recognizes the Memorandum of Agreement made between the ITBC and the National Bison Association. We pledge to equally commit our ranching system program and practices in order to ultimately restore and unite bison herds, tribal lands, and private lands. This agreement is understood as an effort to re-establish a healthy bison population on tribal lands, in order to heal the spirits of both the Indian people and the Great American Bison. As a subsistence lifestyle ranch, the Big Horn Bison Ranching System intends to use all of the parts of the bison as the Native Americans once practiced when they inhabited our ranches lands, when the Great American Bison was thriving and genetically pure. We plan to restore this important lifestyle and culture to our ranching lands, and programs as we take a step towards preserving the Great American Bison genetic diversity, which are in fact at risk of extinction.
