The bison is the iconic animal of the prairies. While searching for a little bit of buffalo milk in order to make a homeopathic remedy, ranchers shared many amazing stories about the buffalo with me. These stories continue to touch and inspire me whenever I think of them and it is my great desire to share them with you. They convey an impression about some of the essential qualities of the bison which can make us understand why Naive people respect and revere this animal so much. To this day elders teach the children about how to live and how to be in the world in a good way through telling stories of the buffalo. Follow me to the Blood Indian Reserve in Alberta where the bison is currently being re-introduced.
Thank you Roland,
Fascinating to hear these stories. This reminds me of the behaviours of elephants in caring for each member of the herd and grieving the loss of both adults and calves.
I’m very interested to hear more about the proving of the Buffalo milk when that is ready. Is this the remedy listed as Lac-bubali ?
I do not know Lac-bubali but it surely is not bison’s milk. Helios has it under “Bison bison”; that means it is probably not made out of the milk but out of another body part of the bison. Which in my opinion does not matter because every part of the bison holds its energy and essence. I am not sure about a proving. There was a proving done at the Western College of Homeopathic Medicine in Calgary. I do not know if it has been published. Because of lingering symptoms I later did a trituration with the group. So far not much has been published about the remedy. Frans Vermeulen will have it in his mammal book that he is working on and the Joshi’s have it in their book about mammals. That is all I know about the remedy.
Beautiful Rolland, thank you for sharing these stories. I also truly appreciated your last share of time and timelessness.
So wonderful to see you with the buffalo. I’m in Saskatchewan for the summer and having a wonderful, wonderful time here on the prairies. Spend a lot of time looking at the clouds and the ever changing weather.
Why do I live in Vancouver, I ask myself, every time I’m back here. Which is every summer for the past +20 years. We have a cottage on Long Lake, which is in the Qu’Appelle valley – that runs east-west in the entire province and was a haven for first peoples both in the summer and winter.
Thank you for this!
Lovely story sharing Roland thank you so much. The Buffalo are such magnificent animals and it was so good to see them behind you in the video and to know there are large herds being raised.
This is such a delightful, humbling story, dear Roland! Thank you!
Great stories. It reminds me of when I was living in the Highlands, outside of Victoria. My living room window was right by a deer path that they travelled every day. One morning I looked out to see a young buck with the bottom half of one leg missing. I was devastated, wondering what must have happened and knowing that the buck wouldn’t last long with only 3 legs. However, I was delighted, several months later, to see it again. It seemed that it was travelling with several other young bucks that I assumed helped it survive by being part of a larger group.
Great idea to make the remedy from Buffalo milk!
Seriously beautiful stories.
Roland you too are a treasure.
