Knife Chief Buffalo Nation Update

Bison Meat Delivered to the Cohen Home
Bison Meat Delivered to the Cohen Home

Hi Supporters of Knife Chief Buffalo Nation,

On Wednesday, January 18, 2012, the Knife Chief Buffalo Nation delivered 200 lbs of grass fed and field-harvested bison meat to Cohen Memorial Home, an Elderly program in Pine Ridge and 300 lbs of meat to Meals for Elderly, a Reservation-wide program that will distribute the meat to elders across the Reservation. Grass fed bison meat is a great low-fat and high-protein alternative to beef, making it perfect for elderly and/or people with diabetes.

Thank you for your support!
