64 Native American Seed • 325 446 3600 Less than 150 years ago, the great North American prairie stretched from Mexico to Canada. During the past five or six generations, 99% of the prairie has been consumed by 1) grazing, 2) farming and 3) urbanization. These three major influences on the prairie are intertwined. All classes of livestock find native prairie grasses to be highly palatable. Farmers enjoyed the benefit of fertile prairie soils. Ultimately, our cities and road systems have centered on the best prairie land. Today, less than .004% of the tallgrass prairie remains in Texas, the largest prairie state leading the nation in number of acres lost to land fragmentation. We know the native people before us, who lived on the land we call home, had 445 generations of experience living here. It is the grass, forming the foundation on which life depends, that gives us pure clean waters, clear blue skies and fertile organic soils.
