What is it about the bison that makes it such a potent symbol? Historian Dan Flores claims that in 1870 there were at least 10 million bison in the southern herd on the North American plains. Flores draws a vivid portrait of these animals in their glory and tells the harrowing story of what happened to them at the hands of market hunters and ranchers. Bring your lunch or purchase one at The Museum Grill. Reservations are not required. Free admission to the Board Room and The Museum Grill. Funding for this program is provided in part by a grant from Oklahoma Humanities (OH) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).
