“In battle, American soldiers were no match for indigenous warriors, and defeating them would require decimating their resources. For Plains Indians, bison were not only a source of food and materials, they were sacred, at the center of life. Hunting bison was a spiritual practice. Government officials determined that killing bison would bring Indians under control while opening up the plains to cattle grazing. And kill the bison they did, millions of them.” — Brooke Williams, Forecast Journal Issue 9
