(Buffaloes, American Bison)

Whatever name you give them, and American bison is also known as a buffalo, and many of them comprise a herd of buffaloes.  These fascinating creatures are the iconographic symbol of the American West and have served as an essential element in the creation of subject matter for the art of that geographic region.  Without them the American Plains Indian would never have developed the culture which many of us revere, nor would Frederick Remington and Charles M. Russell have bothered to venture west.
