Today the Peepeekisis Cree First Nations made a wonderful agreement with Island Breeze Saskatchewan. Island Breeze just donated a sustainable herd of 22 buffalo to the the Peepeekisis. 2 bulls and 20 pregnant cows will be delivered after this years calves are weaned around Christmas. The goal is a sustainable large herd. Three to 5 years from now the herd will be split and the original buffalo transferred to another reserve to start all over again.
The buffalo will come from a herd of over 150 buffalo near Carstairs, Alberta.
