Album Notes
Western Canada looked much different in 1867 than it does today, 150 years later. Without cities, roads and railway lines, it was home to people who lived alongside the most abundant land animal that ever walked the face of the earth: buffalo. Less than two decades later, in the early 1880s, the species that once numbered 30 million across North America became a shadow after being slaughtered by outsiders to near extinction. The buffalo people starved. The ecosystem went into shock. What remained for incoming settlers was a blank canvas for agriculture and development. As a new country formed, the buffalo existed only in images and faint whispers; songs of the buffalo that had echoed across mountain valleys, flatland sloughs and the tall grass prairies for 10,000 years fell silent.

Wake up, sleeping buffalo.

The Wardens, 2017
