Summary
National Bison Day is an annual celebration of the significance of the American bison.

A celebration of the American bison, the US's official national mammal (per 2016's National Bison Legacy Act). Annually, the first Saturday in November.

A campaign is underway to pass federal legislation officially recognizing National Bison Day. Although the legislation has so far failed to pass, the Senate has passed a resolution each year since 2013 recognizing the day.

The American Bison, also commonly known as the American buffalo, once roamed the grasslands of North America in massive herds, and became nearly extinct. The bison are considered a historical symbol of the United States and were integrally linked with the economic and spiritual lives of many Native American tribes through trade and sacred ceremonies.
