You can see a rare white bison in Dogwood Canyon Nature Park.

The new addition was added to the park’s herd of 25 bison earlier this year.

It’s been named Takoda, a Sioux word meaning “friend to everyone”.

Visitors can see it as part of the two-hour guided tram ride through the canyon.

The white bison is a sacred animal in traditional Native American teaching.

The birth of a white bison promotes prayerful communication between Indigenous people and the Great Spirit, and was also a sign of peace and good fortune.

Just 200 years ago, nearly 60 million bison used to live on North American plains.

By 1900, only a few hundred bison remained.
