There have been buffaloes in our corral for a long time. Together we represent lots of languages, lots of colors, lots of reasons to stay, lots of reason to go.

Spirit of the Buffalo originated as a public art project combining art, commerce and civic pride in Oklahoma featuring Oklahoma artists. Initial proceeds benefited the Nature Conservancy's work in Oklahoma. The website project continues through private funds.
