Bamm Brewer talks about the importance of the buffalo to the Lakota and the construction of the Lakota Meat House on Pine Ridge.
Construction for a Lakota owned and operated buffalo meat processing facility is underway. Their hope is to have it operational in the fall of 2015. The Lakota Meat House will enable the Oglala Lakota Nation to produce USDA certified buffalo meat. Not only will it help to end hunger on the reservation, it will also help the Lakota to be self-sufficient. The video was created by Edward Wilson, to which we would like to express our warmest thanks.
