Ghosts of the Great Plains


The Cheyenne River Ranch is located between the Black Hills National Forest and Badlands National Park. This area was a Native stronghold. In "Ghosts of the Great Plains", Dan looks back and explains the history of our area and the Native Americans, and how we are moving forward to heal the land and rebuild relationships by bringing back the buffalo.  We hope you give this important short (30 min.) film a watch. 

This film was produced by our Wholesale Partners at "Natural Grocers". They carry our 100% grass-fed/grass-finished, humanely field harvested buffalo meat. Their stores are located throughout the United States and you can find them here

    Thank you all for your individual as well as collective effort bringing this story to the world through this presentation. Yes, the history is so tragic, the work at hand so great, but the future is bright because of people like all of you at, and those connected to, Wild Idea Buffalo including those of us who are healthier as we receive from your products and wealthier as we learn from your wisdom. This circle is ever expanding and the impact will becoming ever greater.
    We look immediately now into a new year like none other experienced in our history. Huge changes will be forthcoming for the good of mankind, the environment, the animals, the birds, food sources; a time of restoration – history rewritten.

    A fantastic and well produced film. Certainly worthy of viewing again. We may not be on the ranch helping you harvest, or mending fences, but we are happy to do what we can to support you by 100% sole sourcing ALL our red meat from you for several years now. It’s natural. It’s delicious. It’s healthy. The way it was meant to be. Thank you to the entire Wild Idea family!!!

    that daily practice we’ve given our heart to because it helps others, in it we remember what is truly important as our single purpose. we can in a moment pause in stillness and bask in Love’s Light we made to shine, trusting this time has high value for all. this isn’t arrogance, this is Truth.
