Interview with Kristine Johnson

I interviewed Kristine Johnson for the Buffalo Rock documentary yesterday. Kristine came out to the Buffalo Party Convention with a high school girlfriend in 1970, and for all intents and purposes stayed. She worked at Emerald Downs for a couple years, saving money to buy land out in Eatonville, and ended up buying five acres (that she still lives on) almost next door to the Buffalo Party site.

She says she took her horse out on a ride once she moved out, and when she came over a hilltop, there was a buffalo. She says with a smile that is was a bit of a surreal experience.

That car behind her? She races it!
