Give Thanks to the Bison

God visits the sins on the third and fourth generation.  I believe that the crimes against the American Bison or Buffalo might be back a few more than three or four generations.  Never the less, the American Bison roamed the plains and lands from the Midwest all the way to New York.  Has anybody officially apologized to the Bison for what was done to them?  It would have to be an American of European descent.  The Native Americans or First Peoples lived in harmony with the Bison, (as far as I know) so they do not owe the animals an apology.  Maybe they have been apologized to but I would like to take the time to do it again.

For those who don't know the American Bison was very plentiful across the country.  When the european settlers came they decimated the population..nearly to extinction.

Dear Bison, while it was not me personally that destroyed your way of life, it was my people.   What we did was an atrocity, a grave crime.  I hereby apologize.  Bison Spirit, if there is anything that I can do to ease your pain please let me know.  I thank you for how you helped the first peoples have a food source and way of life.  I thank you also for continuing to supply humans with a source of meat.  I send forth my prayers in love and admiration of what you are and what you could be again if not here, in another realm.

This is from an Audubon book of quadrupeds.

This is my little fetish of a bison.  He is out in the yard on my patch of earth.

Bison, as the Earth Mother and Forest Queen, I claim you as my own.

This is Good Friday, so lets take time to think about Jesus.
