Chairman Tracy “Ching” King felt that it was appropriate to name our new government contracting company “Buffalo Horse” as a successful business to create economic sovereignty for the Nakoda and A’aniiih nations. The goal of “Buffalo Horse” was to provide a contract vehicle in the federal procurement space that was unique, which would help our Tribe with self-sustainability and economic sovereignty. Before our People were placed on an Indian Reservation, we were wealthy from our nourishment and goods provided by the bison. The bison provided our homes, clothing, tools, and food. The horse gave us that vehicle to ride alongside the bison to harvest them for our survival.
Chairman King proclaimed that our new government contracts company would be called “Buffalo Horse” because it included the two most essential beings our nation needed for survival and wealth, the Buffalo and The Horse.
