How To Join

How does a Tribe become a member of ITBC?

InterTribal Buffalo Council (ITBC) appreciates your Tribe's interest in becoming a member. In becoming a member, we would hope to be able to assist your Tribe in re-establishing or expanding a bison herd on your lands.

ITBC is a federally chartered Indian Organization under Section 17 of the Indian Reorganization Act and is currently made up of 58 Tribes spanning 19 states. ITBC is committed to restoring bison to Tribal lands in a manner that promotes cultural enhancement, spiritual revitalization, ecological restoration and economic development, while remaining compatible with each member tribes' traditional beliefs and practices.

ITBC is governed by a Board of Directors, which is comprised of five elected officers and four regional representatives.
