The bison is an American icon of the wild with deep ties to native peoples, which is struggling today to reestablish itself in the Great Plains.
Facing the Storm: Story of the American Bison documents the complete history of human relations with the largest land mammal on the continent. From the first North Americans who relied on bison for food, shelter, and clothing for at least 10,000 years, to modern wildlife conservationists — descendants of those first North Americans among them — Facing the Storm: Story of the American Bison introduces viewers to a rich history of human sustenance, exploitation, conservation, and spiritual relations with the ultimate icon of wild America.
