Although buffalo habitat didn't extend as far south as Zuni Pueblo, Zuni traveled north to hunt the buffalo as its hide, horn & meat were highly prized. Today, buffalo remain mostly on private land & aren't hunted, but the creature's magnificence & iconic association with the West still influence the Zuni imagination. The buffalo is associated with strength & emotional courage, substance & endurance and is a harbinger of snow in winter. The American buffalo or bison is a symbol of abundance and manifestation, and the lesson learned by the Lakota tribe with the appearance of the white buffalo is that one does not have to struggle to survive if the right action is joined by the right prayer.
