We donate 5% of our buffalo robe profits to the Intertribal Buffalo Council, a non-profit tribal organization that is committed to reestablishing and growing the buffalo herds on Indian Land. With the exception of a few wild herds, buffalo live on ranch land and their numbers are highly influenced by whether or not it makes more sense to raise buffalo or cattle. By making use of buffalo products, and donating to a great organization, we are encouraging the continued restoration of the great buffalo herds of the west.
“The InterTribal Buffalo Council was formed in 1990 to coordinate and assist tribes in returning the buffalo to Indian country. ITBC has a membership of 58 tribes in 19 states with a collective herd of over 15,000 bison. ITBC is committed to reestablishing buffalo herds on Indian lands in a manner that promotes cultural enhancement, spiritual revitalization, ecological restoration, and economic development”. They actively work to protect the wild Yellowstone herds, build native herds, educate the public and provide buffalo meat to native school children, Learn more at the ITBC website, or visit them on Facebook.
