One hundred years ago, Yosemite was protected by Buffalo Soldiers, African-American cavalrymen who served in the US Army and were among the first guardians of the newly formed park. Park ranger Shelton Johnson portrays Sergeant Elizy Boman, circa 1903, in this new film, which is an artful depiction of life in Yosemite as a member of Troop “K” Ninth Cavalry. We invite you to witness this exciting chapter of the park’s history coming alive at the Yosemite Theater.
