In many prophecies, the birth of rare animals represents a rebirth for humanity, the animals being harbingers of peace. This is especially true in the case of the white buffalo.
'White' takes any physical archetype and raises it to a higher frequency of light, associating it with spirit manifestation and our time of awakening.
The pipe is balanced.
There is a Native American legend about the birth of a white buffalo / bison which signals the return of the goddess White Buffalo Calf Woman (Metaphor: Return of the feminine/goddess/priestess archetype) in the end times, or at the evolution of consciousness / golden age / end of days / opening of the A HREF="hallofrecords.html">Hall of Records in the right paw of the sphinx (paws, pause in programming, the right paw is near the end of the tail/tale), the golden capstone of the pyramid reset in place (alchemy, hourglass and time inverted), etc.
I've heard about many white buffalo calves born in recent years. The latest addition happened in Fort St. John in northeastern British Columbia on April 17, 2005.
The birth of a rare white bison, the odds of which are said to be one in 10 million, is creating some excitement on a ranch in North Peace Country.
The buffalo was named Spirit of Peace.
The owners of the Blatz Bison Ranch, in Fort St. John, just across the Alberta border in British Columbia, say the white buffalo calf was born prematurely on April 17.
Native legend holds that the white bison is a harbinger of peace and unity, a symbol of hope, rebirth.
He got his name because he was born north of Peace River.
He was only nine kilograms at birth, half of a newborn bison calf's typical weight. The calf started feeding from bottles shortly after his birth as he was having trouble getting milk from his mother.
Blatz said she was stunned when she saw the young creature for the first time.² It was almost like we couldn't believe our eyes. We know how rare it is and we thought, how can this be on our farm?" she said.
Blatz said the calf will remain under her care for several more months, but she is considering selling him to the native Americans. People need to be in the presence of the buffalo.
The calf is already drawing attention from curious neighbors and the media.
One authority on white bison believes only 19 others like Spirit of Peace have been born in the past 70 years.
Blatz attributed the odds of the birth, one in 10 million, to the National Buffalo Association.
Return of the White Buffalo
Kentucky: A second rare white buffalo born in 2005
The white calf is named Cante Pejuta, or Medicine Heart.
Her mother, formerly cow No. 9, is now Spirit Mother.
Courier Journal, June 8, 2005
This white buffalo is unique as it links to 9/11.
When a rare white buffalo was born Friday at a buffalo ranch in Shelby County, owners Bob and Julie Allen thought the baby had prophecy written in her genes.
The white calf, regarded as a sacred symbol by Lakota Sioux and other Plains Indian tribes, is a granddaughter of the ranch's former big star, award-winning bull Chief Joseph, a hefty 3,000-pound sire that had cost the Allens $101,000.
The bull was struck by lightning on Sept. 11, 2001, and died two weeks later.
So the Allens, who own the Buffalo Crossing Restaurant & Family Fun Ranch, were delighted by the calf's birth.
"The appearance of a white buffalo is regarded by some followers of American Indian spirituality as on par with the Christian idea of the second coming of Christ," said Bob Pickering, a researcher at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyo. "I've heard at least one Lakota elder make that claim," said Pickering, whose book Seeing the White Buffalo delves into the legend of the creatures.
"As the story goes, Lakota Sioux rituals and beliefs were brought to the tribe by a spiritual being known as the White Buffalo Calf Woman," Pickering said.
A white buffalo calf is interpreted as the sacred reincarnation of the woman, he said. Historically, the white buffalo is probably about the most spiritual being on the prairie," he said.
Pickering estimated the incidence of white buffalo births at about 16 per million.
He said there are three reasons white calves sometimes appear ... they may be:
- the result of crossbreeding with white cows
- temporarily white and turn dark by their first winter
"The calf is not an albino," said Julie Allen, noting that its eyes are brown, not pink.
Flicking her ears and whisking her tail back and forth, the 40-to-50-pound calf resembles a lamb.
"In the past, Indians sacrificed white buffalo as sacred offerings, but now they avoid doing that," Pickering said.
About 600 buffalo roam the Allens' 1,000 acres. They raise buffalo primarily for meat and to serve in the restaurant on their property. But in keeping with tradition, the white calf, which has yet to be named, likely will be spared.
From a Crystalinks' reader named Sue
I looked up the location of the Buffalo ranch on map quest. The address is 1140 Bagdad Road, Shelbyville, KY. This is on KY 12, west of Bagdad and south of Christianburg. The ranch looks to be close to the junction of the road leading north to Christianburg. Bagdad is a real town. Kentucky's only female governor, Martha Layne Collins attended Bagdad High School with my ex mother-in-law.
There was a story circulating a few years ago that some felt Bagdad should change its name after 9/11. The residents said, "No, if the state capital can remain Frankfort through two world wars, Bagdad can stay Bagdad. Neither is spelt the same in Kentucky anyway." Actually, Frankfort was "Frank's Fort".

When you have time ...
Find a quiet place, free of distractions.
Close your eyes.
Relax your body.
Still you mind.
Take 2 long slow .... deep .... breaths.
Focus on the music.
Allow the drumming to take you to the home of the white buffalo.
A large bird soars overhead. It is one of your power animals come to guide you on this day.
Feel ... the wind blowing around you ... the earth and grass beneath your feet ... the warm rays of the sun on your face.
Take another deep breath.
You stand at the entrance to the sacred hoop.
Move through the center of the hoop.
White Buffalo Calf Woman waits for your return.
Look into her eyes. There is recognition reflected in her gaze.
She gives you her sacred peace pipe. Feel it in your hands, its symbology stirring your soul.
It is time...
Follow her as she takes you on a sacred journey.
There she will give you a prophetic message created by the archetypes of your design.
