.." Conferderated Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes – Bison Range.....The CSKT Bison Range is located in Moiese, Montana, and consists of more than 18,000 pristine acres where approximately 350 bison roam alongside deer, elk, pronghorn, bears, native birds and more, all against the backdrop of the stunning Mission Mountains. Visitors can take a self-directed driving tour featuring two scenic drives (one of which is seasonal and includes walking trails).....

...... Extensive efforts by the CSKT to regain management of the herd and land resulted in it eventually being incorporated into the Montana Water Rights Protection Act in 2020, and in 2022 it was officially restored to the Confederated Salish & Kootenai Tribes."...

Saw on ABC special that it was Trumpet administration who signed in the Montana Water Rights Protection Act.  Wow kudoe's to Trumpet for that one and probably mostly to the Deb Haaland who became Secretary of Interior in 2012 as first native american to hold that position.YAY!

Did you know that today there are 500,000+ bison in the United States, and, in 2016, the American bison was named the national mammal of the United States?

FL, yes Im familiar with that info and private group that has or is working on million acres of private land for bison. They rasise money to buy out cattle ranchers for fair price or better and put bisons on that land. Some cattler ranchers are happy with these deals and take the money and start their new ranches elsewhere.

That is seperate for the justice for indians getting land returned to them some 100 or more years later in Montana specifically involving those tribes managing the bison.

Interesting that modern Americans nor  "First Nations" were named the national mammal.

Especially as the Bison probably got there the same way that everyone else did..

Global migration...But not necessarily in boats.
