Lakota Legend of White Buffalo
Lakota legend of the white buffalo
Clear intent for peace harmony and balance
Between all colors of man
And all living things in Earth mother
Trust the guidance given to you by Spirit world
Give thanks for your blessings
Keep communication with creator open
White buffalo is a reminder of this and more
Symbolizes the seven sacred ceremonies
Sweat lodge for purification, healing ceremony,
Adoption, Marriage, and Sundance ceremony
Also Vision Quest
The seven sacred ways to pray
White buffalo legend told in council meetings
Shared in sweat lodge ceremonies,
Understood well by tribal story tellers.
The return of the white buffalo
Means prayers are being heard
Prophecy’s promises are being fulfilled
Signals a time of abundance and plenty.
