The Legend of the White Buffalo

Native Americans, and many other peoples here in America, are expecting a happy turning of the new millennium, thanks to a rare white buffalo yearling born in Wisconsin. Native Americans consider the buffalo a sacred messenger, the white calf, named Miracle lives on a small farm in Wisconsin, where she is visited by Medicine Men, parents who want their newborns to touch her and many others bearing gifts.To believers the birth of the calf in August 1994 means mankind will have to go through some trails in the last years of the millennium, and the coming years following. But those who survive can see true peace and brotherhood and sisterhood and experience the true meaning of loving unconditionally. She was born white but has turned a yellowish color, which is still an unusual shade for a buffalo. According to Lakota legend and other tales, the white buffalo calf appeared seven generations ago before three hunters and subsequently was turned into a woman. White Buffalo Calf Woman, as she came to be known gave the tribe seven sacred rites that are still practiced. Calf Woman said she would reapppear at certain times, and that is why Native Americans greeted the birth of the calf named Miracle with rejoice and happiness.

A very interesting story, Blake, thanks for sharing it. Wouldn't it be wonderful if the birth of the while buffalo really signified peace and brother/sisterhood?
