For thousands of years, we relied upon the Buffalo for everything. We used the animal to feed, clothe and shelter ourselves and the people. The File Hills Qu’Appelle Tribal Council chose the buffalo as the central figure because it’s an animal that represents strength and survival.
The calf featured within the larger adult figure symbolizes the energy and spirit of our youth. The hooves that circle the buffalo represent the eleven First Nations that make up the FHQ Tribal Council and our internal focus of standing together in solidarity.
