When Buffalo met Bear

Many winter moons ago a lonesome buffalo was roaming the plains. Buffalo made her way too far north. She became lost during a brutal winter storm. The wind blowing snow everywhere made it hard for her to see. Yet she seen something making its way towards her. It was Bear. Buffalo didn’t understand how Bear was out walking during his slumber season

Bear walked up to Buffalo. He told her he was awaken because of the vision he had. It was told to him he would come across a wondering Buffalo. Whether it was her, he was meant to see. We will never know.

After the storm died down. Bear showed Buffalo his lands. Bear helped Buffalo anyway he could. When the spring came Buffalo took Bear down towards the south. Buffalo wanted to show Bear everything he showed her.

They showed each other different ways of the north and south. They talked about old ways. They listened to the old songs. They lived together in unison living the ways of the buffalo and bear. You can still see Buffalo walking with Bear to this day.

This was told the way I made it up. Lol just a fun story for valentines! I’m buffalo clan myself. I always call my mans my bear, so I thought of this story.
