After a series of face offs between police and peaceful demonstrators protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline, an unexpected show of force emerged last week,  a thundering herd of buffalo.

Native Americans attempting to stop a pipeline from being built on their land received assistance from a large herd of wild buffalo.
The stampede near the Standing Rock protest camp prompted cries of joy from the Standing Rock Sioux.

Natural Blaze reports:

After months of similar struggle to protect sacred burial grounds and the Missouri river, opposers of the DAPL were blessed today when a herd of buffalo appeared from nowhere. While mass arrests, macing, and beatings from batons took place, a stampede of bison appeared near the Standing Rock protest camp. Reportedly, a cry of joy erupted from the crowd, as protectors have been praying for help from the American bison (known as Tatanka Oyate) during their standoff with riot police and national guardsmen.

As UsUncut relays, the Native American culture honors the Tatanka Oyate as a symbol of sacrifice. Its appearance is reportedly being hailed as a gift from the Great Spirit.

Buffalo are revered as symbols of sacrifice in Native American culture. Indigenous people believe the American bison, which are also known as “Tatanka Oyate” or “Buffalo Nation,” sacrifice themselves in order to supply their meat and their hides for people.

    My people are as blessed by Great White Father as any of we that believe and carry the faith. His hand is no doubt in this..he is tired of the Government kicking people off their lands for simply money..another example of how the Lord works, is a painful one..about six to eight weeks before my son killed himself..one of the two tribes that we are from came to him..I knew, yet ignored..shame on me..I will carry this to my grave..the odd thing..the Sioux and Crow have always been enemies. My mom is a Sioux, the g.daughter as we have been told, of a powerful Medicine Woman, my bio father is a Crow and from the other end of the continuum; My son embraced the Crow part of our ancestry, self the Sioux…the Crow came for him and my mom was with him! To you that might join the discussion: Happy Halloween, an occult holiday but those little ones are sure cute..where I live, I do not get to see them..Wakan Tanka Kici Un…Buzz

    “Considering the lengths ETP has undertaken with the Dakota Access Pipeline — even justifying abhorrently brutal policing against unarmed protectors — news the project will proceed unhindered hardly came as a shock.” Well, if ETP doesn’t have permission, then send the “brutal policing” against the ETP.
