On October 9th 2022 the MMNP Team traveled to northeast West Virginia to film the Riffle Farms Bison Roast. The Bison Roast is a two day event starting with a field harvest and interactive processing demonstration. Participants are able to take bison steaks home with them. The Bison is then put on a spit and roasted overnight for the dinner celebration the next day.
Bison not only plays a role in indigenous culture, as our national mammal it has become an icon even in modern western culture. The MMNP Team filmed the “Soiree on the Range” at Bigelow Fields Bison Ranch and Bakery. The epic fall scenery accompanied with the backdrop of bison herds created an incredible atmosphere for attendees. Bigelow Fields provided bison chili and wrapped up the event with some bison education.
Sicangu CDC’s food sovereignty program brings the bison back into the classroom and diets of the Lakota people. By means of education, cultural rehabilitation, and whole food education, Sicangu Co is working to restore Lakota values through community-driven programs.
