The Buffalo with Adrian Stimson

The Buffalo, nearly exterminated in North America in the 1800s, now exist almost exclusively as farmed herds. This program focuses on Blackfoot artist Adrian Stimson who feels an inherent connection to these majestic beasts. He is inspired by the Plains landscape and takes viewers on a scouting trip of historic buffalo habitats in Saskatchewan. Stimson uses painting, drawing and installation techniques to reclaim his connection to the buffalo through art. He takes on the persona of a buffalo when he becomes "Buffalo Boy."
