Stillaguamish buys land for buffalo

The (Everett) Herald reports on the recent purchase of land near Arlington for Buffalo to graze:

The herd will be a tourist attraction, with the fresh, lean buffalo meat as a main attraction.

The animals’ hides and hooves, which usually demand high prices, will be used for tribal ceremonies. The meat, which experts say could help prevent diabetes, a disease that runs rampant in Indian Country, will be readily available for tribal members.
