Also known as the North American Bison and Tatanka, the buffalo is the most honored animal in Native American tribes within North America. The magnificent creature provided food, clothing, shelter, tools, and medicine for the peoples. With its gigantic frame, the buffalo can transfix anyone merely by its presence. It symbolizes abundance, provision, strength, stability, and prosperity.
Sure, seeing the skull or hide of an animal mounted on a wall may suggest you’re in a hunter’s lair. For an animal lover, this may seem appalling, but what most outsiders don’t know is it roots from centuries old traditions. And what’s fascinating about early cultures is that they’re more in tune with the natural wonders of the world. Indigenous tribes from different nations are more connected to Earth and that’s what we’re catching up on after the boom of global warming and singularity.
Since they work together with nature or in the truest sense – one with, they are bound to all living things. So even if they hunt animals for food, clothing, and ritual purposes, they see it as energy sharing and such creatures don’t transcend without being highly appreciated.
There is nothing quite so comfortable and primal as wrapping up in an authentic braintan buffalo hide. On a camping trip, or at home on the bed or couch, a braintan buffalo robe is luxuriously warm and deeply comforting in a way that synthetic fabrics can never match. And braintanning a buffalo hide is an all natural process that can save a beautiful skin from going to waste.
