It's been 200 years, but bison are finally returning home, to Fort Peck.

“It’s a special day,” said Larry Wetsit, Assiniboine, the vice president of community services at Fort Peck Community College. “Our people have been waiting and praying about this for a couple hundred years. My relations, there were hundreds of them, starved on several occasions here as we were placed on the reservation. It was all about having no buffalo. That was the low part in our history, the lowest we could go. This is a start on the road to recovery.”
