In the rolling meadow below Mohawk Mountain in the northwest corner of Connecticut, a white buffalo baby trots alongside his massive mother, his whiteness highlighted against her dark brown winter fur that is still molting in the summer heat.
The white buffalo or bisonTatanka Ska in the Sioux languagewas born June 16, at 1 p.m. on Peter Fays Mohawk Bison ranch in Goshen, Connecticut. Although Fay is not a Native and was only vaguely familiar with the story of the White Buffalo Calf Woman and the white buffalo as a spiritual symbol of sacred life and abundance to the Lakota and others, he has opened his heart and mind to the indigenous knowledge and practices that strangers have introduced into his lifesweet grass, tobacco, sage and stories of the ceremonies surrounding the birth of a white buffalo.
I think its amazing. Im pretty excited about it. Im learning a lot, Fay said. Its a good thing.

this “WHITE GIFT FROM GOD!” Oh, lets not forget that Obama HUSSEIN is alleged to be at least Half WHITE!
Rare? Well, there have been about 14 of them since 1994. Reportedly, some retained their white coloring, while most turned brown as they matured.
I’m starting to have a memory come forward. Isn’t there an indian tribe that predicts that as we near the end of the world, all wild animals will be white? Little by little the white color variation of all wild animal species will become more and more common until that’s all there is?
Paging Elizabeth Warren. The need a ceremony for the rare white Indian named Elizabeth.
I think it’s a good omen for a pale-faced presidential candidate.
I love the Buffalo. (fond of Yaks, too)
I hope the little guy does well. I’m looking forward to hearing what they name him.
I'll call it... Dinner!!
