In the 1860's, with the decline of the buffalo, the Cypress Hills, which still contained buffalo herds, became more important than ever to the Plains Cree... When the negotiations for Treaty 6 began at Fort Carlton in August of 1876, several Cree chiefs were worried about finding a way to maintain the buffalo herds and in the process, maintain the Plains Cree way of life and provide them with enough security for the future. After Treaty 6, Little Pine, Big Bear and Lucky Man moved south to the Cypress Hills to try and continue hunting buffalo, but by 1879 almost no buffalo were making their way into Canada.... With their people starving, there was much pressure on Little Pine and Lucky man to take Treaty and as a result, get some much needed rations for their people. Facing starvation and an uncertain future, both Little Pine and Lucky Man adhered to Treaty 6 on July 2 1879. Little Pine and Lucky Man spent their lives trying to protect their people and their way of life. This is their story. "
