Manitoba Order of the Buffalo Hunt

Established with an Order-in-Council of the provincial government on 25 March 1957, Manitoba’s Order of the Buffalo Hunt was originally conferred on people who, though not necessarily residing in Manitoba, were “known to be kindly disposed towards Manitoba.” [1] The award was accompanied by a certificate of membership, signed by the Premier and sealed with the Great Seal, and a buffalo statuette with an appropriately inscribed brass plaque affixed to its base. Its first recipient was Queen Elizabeth II.

The Order was the highest honour the province could bestow on individuals who demonstrated outstanding skills in the areas of leadership, service, and community commitment. The nomination process was open and non-partisan. Any person or group could propose someone for membership by submitting a nomination in writing to the Clerk of the Executive Council for the Province of Manitoba.

The Order was continued in 1977 by a new Order-in-Council. [2] In 1999, when the Order of Manitoba was established, the Order of the Buffalo Hunt was reconfigured as a symbol of provincial recognition for noteworthy achievements in sports and other public endeavours, with recipients selected by the Premier of Manitoba.

The levels of appointment in the Order are as follows:

  • Chief Hunter
  • Captain of the Hunt
  • Provost of the Hunt
  • Buffalo Scout
  • Achievement
