Matt Hamon’s popular American photographer Matt Hamon joined the enthusiast group called "Buffalo Bridge" to show how people can act outside the usual industrial production and consumption modes.

In winter, the Indians go hunting near the borders of the famous Yellowstone National Park to kill a few bizonov who left the territory of the reserve. Together with them there is a group "Buffalo Bridge".

The group founded Katie Russell. In his youth, the girl was fond of traditional crafts, learned to live in the forest and drove to game.

Indians led hunting for bison in Yellowstone for centuries. But in 1872, when the National Park was formed, this tradition was forced to interrupted. For more than a century, the Indians were forbidden to kill these animals in order to restore their population.

Starting from 2015, Buffalo Bridge participants help to enter the carcass. All parts of the animal are used for any purpose. Meat canned, fat rush into banks, sew clothes from the skins, and tools and decorations are made from bones and horns.

The group uses solely hand-made tools – obsidian knives and bone hammers.

Most of the meat is taken by Indian hunters, but what remains, it is enough to make the ordering for all group members.
