Bison Manure (double bagged)


Buffalo Nickel


Acorn to represent the hardwoods and a source of food for the bison.


Compass and “Chain” to represent the links in an historic surveyor’s chain. The twine has sections divided up to represent the length of a link of a chain just as the surveyors would have used in the 1800s.


Sinew from a bison used for many purposes by Native Americans and pioneers.


Mineral salts which helped determine the route of the bison since they could never travel far from mineral sources.


Two pieces of bison hide, one from the hump area showing how shaggy and long it is, and one from the back of the bison which is shorter and dense.


Wooden nickels with information about bison.


Bison molar tooth


Section from a rifle that an Indiana Ranger might have used, a patch he would have used to push the ball down, and a pewter ball made to fit the rifle. The Rangers would have used lead balls, but we had pewter balls made for educational purposes.


The Seal of the State of Indiana. Reproductions provided by the Indiana Archives and Records Administration for their bicentennial project.
