Buffalo Field Campaign
So nice to have Eli back from Yellowstone. We had a little trouble playing his first interview directly from an iPhone. We finally put it on speakerphone and held it close to the mic. Playing it back, I could hear the interview quite well. He has others, and we are troubleshooting our connection so the quality is better next time.
I'm not going to say too much about Eli's trip. Hopefully, we can put a bunch of pictures on this blog, and broadcast more interviews. It is heartening that people will make this trip out West and spend weeks in fairly primitive cabins to get up early each morning and cross country ski through buffalo territory. Such devotion is the antithesis of what our pioneers ancestors did. The destruction of the buffalo was part of the American genocide of its native peoples. Maybe the current preservation efforts are more than symbolic. They are an awakening of our humanity.
