Meaning of BUFFALO in English

[Native American] As an animal the buffalo served as the great provider. Meat, clothing, tools, weapons, were made from the buffalo. Unused portions were rare. The animal appears in many ceremonies and rituals. The herds once extended from the Northeast to the South to the western mountains and were compared by early pioneers to "brown seas stretching to the horizon". The White Buffalo is generally regarded to dwell in the North and represents great wisdom.
