The Buffalo's in the video were an idea taken from the One single cover.

From U2wandererDOTorg

Front Cover Image: David Wojnarowicz.

The image on the cover is a photograph by the American artist David Wojnarowicz, depicting how Indians hunted buffalo by causing them to run off cliffs. Wojnarowicz identifies himself and ourselves with the buffalo, pushed into the unknown by forces we cannot control or even understand. Wojnarowicz is an activist artist and writer whose work has created controversy recently through its uncompromising depiction of the artist's homosexuality, his infection by the H.I.V. virus and the political crisis surrounding AIDS.

Those are the liner notes from the "One" single. He was alive when it was released.
