GRAND CANYON, Ariz. - The American Bison has been a part of American history for centuries.

Considered a sacred animal to many Native American tribes, a primary food source and livelihood for Natives, trappers and later buffalo hunters, the America Bison has stood the test of time and prevailed. Now in a national effort to preserve genetically pure bison lineage, Arizona is joining a national effort to create a conservation bison herd.
