# 370 Buffalo in Winter
The Yellowstone Park buffalo herd is descended from a remnant population of 23 individual bison that survived the mass slaughter of the 19th century, by hiding out in the Pelican Valley of Yellowstone Park. Yellowstone is the only place in the United States where buffalo have lived continuously since prehistoric times. Unlike most other herds, this population has thousands of individuals that are allowed to roam relatively freely over the expansive landscape of Yellowstone National Park and some nearby areas of Montana. The buffalo population was on the brink of extinction just over a century ago. Today, there are approximately 250,000 buffalo within the United States and thousands more in Canada. The buffalo continues to be important as a source of food as well as spiritual symbolism for Native Americans throughout Turtle Island (North America).
