Buffalo and Westward Expansion

The enduring impact of manifest destiny

Join our educator for an introduction to the cultural and environmental significance of the bison in the American West, and examine the challenges posed by Manifest Destiny and Westward Expansion. Students will challenge themselves to think critically and engage with a variety of museum exhibitions and collections objects to explore the immediate and long-term implications of westward expansion on cultures, ecology, and governance.
