Sings to the Buffalo

Healing Moon by K Henderson

Sings to the Buffalo, 36 x 24, oil on linen

According to tradition some people were gifted by spirit helpers to use a special song to lure buffalo into a  buffalo pound  which was a huge corral with walls covered by the leaves of thick bushes. As he sang, he used a drum. The song enticed the lead buffalo cow to bring her herd into the enclosure.

This painting is inspired by a 1880’s photograph of a Cree Indian who was said to have this gift.
