Bison Skull Mountain

The famous picture from 1870 showing a huge pile of bison (buffalo) skulls.

Massive bison herds once numbered tens of millions of animals across North America but the Bison/Buffalo was hunted to near extinction in the late 19th century.

The American settler military was heavily involved in bison slaughter.

The settlers’ principal motive was that they wanted to weaken the North American Indian population by removing their main food source and to pressure them onto the reservations during times of conflict.

So, a double whammy of genocides… targeting both the buffalo and the North American Native.

The former now exists only in limited numbers in some sickly herds, while the erstwhile 40+ Native North American nations are also gone for ever, the entire indigenous civilization destroyed and supplanted.
