Boot Hill Museum - Traveling Exhibit: Bison

Friday, April 2, 2021

Bison explores the significance of bison in the cultures of Plains Indian peoples—particularly as a resource for food, clothing, shelter, and tools. That coexistence changed dramatically with the closing of the frontier that brought new settlers with livestock to compete for grass and water during a time of climate and habitat change. These developments were exacerbated by the commodification of the bison as hide and bone in late nineteenth-century industrialization. For 35 years the Kauffman Museum has curated, designed, and fabricated special exhibitions to share beyond their home in the central plains.
