Return of the White Buffalo

Arvol Lookinghorse is a Lakota spiritual leader and 19th generation keeper of the Tradition of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf. (Wakan Chanupa). According to the Wodakota website: “People of the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota Sioux Nation believe the White Buffalo Calf Woman appeared to the tribes hundreds of years ago, bringing instruction in sacred ceremonies of how to live in balance with all life, and leaving behind a sacred bundle containing a sacred pipe of peace. She left prophecies about a time in which she would return again. The 1994 birth of a white buffalo calf is believed to have been the sign that these times were now at hand.” Arvol’s story is woven together with the return of the White Buffalo and the healing of the planet. He has travelled around the world with a message of peace and urging people to honour the earth and all of its inhabitants while promoting dialogue among indigenous people.
