Buffaloes have a big impact on the ecosystem of the plains lands of Turtle Island. Science Questers go on a journey in Blackfoot Territory to learn about the restoration of the Buffalo and eco-balance. Kai makes some quick and tasty pemmican.

COYOTE'S CRAZY SMART SCIENCE SHOW (Coyote Science) is a visually stunning, award-winning adventures-in-science series designed for elementary students. Drawing on wisdom from pioneers in Indigenous education, including Dr. Leroy Little Bear, Amethyst First Rider, and Dr. Lorna Williams, Coyote Science bridges the worlds of Indigenous and Western science, teaching kids scientific concepts through discussions with Indigenous scientists, storytelling, animation, music, and experiments.

BIO: Created by Loretta Todd, a Métis–Cree filmmaker who was one of the first Indigenous women to pursue film studies at Simon Fraser University in BC. Loretta is an amateur science geek who always wanted to inspire Indigenous children and youth to learn more about science, especially Indigenous science. Using her creative skills as a creative, L. S. Todd is an internationally acclaimed, award-winning filmmaker known for powerful, visual storytelling and cultural leadership.

Buffalo have sustained many generations and were a key part of the ecosystem of the plains land. Did you know there was once over 50 million buffalo on Turtle Island, before the practice of cultural genocide by colonizers almost wiped out all the buffalo. Our Blackfoot Science Questers visit with Dr. Leroy Little Bear to learn about the science of Buffalo restoration. We meet Environmental Scientist Paulette Fox from Kainai Nation who always dreamed of helping the Buffalo and she shares how she brings Indigenous Science and Elders teachings to her work. Plus, Dan Fox shows what it means to him and his family to bring back the Buffalo. Commander John Herrington teaches us about buffalo rocks also known as how erratics that can tell us stories about the land. Our animation story shares the origins of the Grassdance and Kai makes some quick and tasty pemmican.
