Alongside Blackfoot Elder Leroy Little Bear, Director Tasha Hubbard explores humanity's deep connection to the buffalo and how the potential of their return to the Great Plains can bring a new era of sustainability.

Filmmakers in attendance!

In a time of immense environmental degradation and global uncertainty, the buffalo can lead us to a better tomorrow. After a dark recent history, the buffalo herds of North America are awaiting their return, aided by dedicated Indigenous activists, leaders and communities, including award-winning Cree filmmaker Tasha Hubbard (nîpawistamâsowin: We Will Stand Up).

With Blackfoot Elder Leroy Little Bear, Director Tasha Hubbard weaves an intimate story of humanity's connections to buffalo and meticulously reveals how their return to the Great Plains can usher in a new era of sustainability and balance. On her journey, Hubbard explores the challenges buffalo allies face and shares the positive steps already taken towards the ultimate, but uncertain, goal of buffalo rematriation.
