Lecture | Texas Tribal Buffalo Project
Our new exhibit, Charles M. Russell: Storyteller Across Media, focuses on all the different art forms through which the artist communicated a story in his work. One of the common narratives in Russell’s art is that of the relationship between Indigenous people of the Great Plains and the American bison. What does that relationship look like today? For this lecture, Lucille Contreras, enrolled member of the Lipan Apache Band of Texas, will talk about the Texas Tribal Buffalo Project (TTBP). TTBP is working to honor their ancestors and inspire a reclamation of Lipan Apache language, traditional food, and other cultural practices through restoration of their relatives, the buffalo, on their homelands in south central Texas.
