In the sec­ond half-hour, Tiokasin catch­es up with return­ing guest Stephany Seay. Stephany is Co-Founder and Board Pres­i­dent of Roam Free Nation. She has been work­ing in ser­vice to the last wild buf­fa­lo for more than 20 years. Stephany learned about the con­tin­ued war against wild buf­fa­lo in 1996 and has been advo­cat­ing for them ever since. In response to their strug­gle, she moved to Mon­tana on New Years Day 2004, where she became the media coor­di­na­tor for Buf­fa­lo Field Cam­paign, from which she part­ed ways after 18 years of ser­vice over philo­soph­i­cal dif­fer­ences. Stephany has near­ly 20 years of expe­ri­ence stand­ing with the buf­fa­lo and is an avid wildlife pho­tog­ra­ph­er, back coun­try ski­er and horse­woman. She is a mem­ber of Deep Green Resis­tance. Stephany trusts that the buf­fa­lo have called us not just to help defend them, but to help us save us from our­selves from the unsus­tain­able and self­ish cre­ation of indus­tri­al civ­i­liza­tion.
