The Buffalo War is Coming to PBS

This is more than a story about livestock disease, animal management or a range war. The bison conflict has stirred people from vastly different backgrounds, offering a fascinating cross section of life in the Rocky Mountains today.

At the center of the battle is the buffalo, an animal that, in its silence, manages to tell us a great deal about how we see the world.

 

In a war between conservation and commerce, the future destiny of a people, the future of a species, and the economy of a region is at stake.

The Buffalo War reveals the tensions between Native American tribal members, environmental activists, and ranchers in the American West at the start of a new century.

The Buffalo War will be airing on PBS on different dates across the country. If your local PBS station isn't listed below, you can go to PBS.org and click on the Broadcast Schedule link to find your area PBS station.
