Exhibit Opening: The Bison

The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History, in cooperation with the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), proudly presents The Bison: American Icon. Originating from the C. M. Russell Museum in Great Falls, MT, this exhibit explores the meaning and significance of the iconic creature from the Plains Indian culture of the 1800s through the commercial and national symbol of today. The Bison documents the dramatic changes that occurred to the creature and its habitat, and to the people who depended upon it for their daily survival. The exhibit also illuminates the human response that eventually led to the bison’s preservation as a species and a symbol in the 20th century.
