Native Americans have always had many legends that span over thousands of years. Yet despite the many legends, the most sacred one involves the birth of a White Buffalo calf.

There are countless stories about the White Buffalo, with a slightly different tale being told for every tribe. But the message is clear in all of them; The Native Americans see the white buffalo calf as a sign to begin mending life's sacred hoop, to connect with each another and with our Mother Earth whom we must stop destroying. The White Buffalo is a very sacred sign and symbol to the Native Americans.

It may be that not all white buffaloes are created equal, for there is a herd in Bend, Oregon, that contains 11 white buffaloes. Even so, it’s safe to say there aren’t a lot of them; an article on the herd from 2010 said that experts estimate that there are less than 50 white buffaloes in existence. Native Americans are taking this as a sign that something profound is happening to our planet as well as to humanity.

The sacredness of the white buffalo is linked to the story of White Buffalo Calf Woman, a Lakota prophet who brought the Lakota the Seven Sacred Rituals.

Esteemed Lakota spiritual leader John Lame Deer called the white buffalo “the most sacred living thing you could ever encounter.” Oglala Sioux spiritual leader Floyd Looks for Buffalo Hand, a grandson of Red Cloud, is quoted as saying “The arrival of the white buffalo is like the second coming of Christ. … It will bring about purity of mind, body, and spirit and unify all nations—black, red, yellow, and white.”

Understanding just how important the white buffalo is then, it becomes extremely hideous and despicable that a canned hunting outfit in Texas called the Texas Hunt Lodge is now offering the chance to kill these majestic and spiritually significant creatures. For $18,500, a person can go there and do exactly that.

These are canned hunts which means the animal has no chance for escape and is in an enclosed area that makes it extremely easy to kill them. They are also usually very used to the presence of humans so they do not have the fear of man as would a wild bison. The White Buffalo has a very spiritual significance to the Native American culture.

    Sadistic, greedy, people suckering kill happy gun owners to destroy innocent trapped animals. That's not anything to be proud of or admired. Wonder what kind of tall tales the hunters are going to come up with once they display their prey? And, how many people will believe them?

    It is an act of abhorrence to kill such an amazing, and rare beast. There really is something wrong with the planet and the people destroying her and her brethren.

  3. Vial subspecies can only entertain such a horrible act! Subhuman garbage.

  4. I am losing hope for the future of mankind more

  5. How is killing a grazing animal considered hunting? There is a mental health epidemic among people who get a thrill out of killing animals.

  6. Shame on Anyone that Would do This...

  7. Greedy cowards. Hunt will be set up so buffalo has no chance. Hell holds a special place for all involved.

    You people should be ashamed of yourselves. Is there anything​ sacred in this life. What goes around comes around. You will see. Wait for it. You will know when Karma come looking for you.

    these people, must have to make up for smaller things, small intellect, small brains, small organs--no respect for god's creatures. i can only pray that one day, they too get hunted in a small enclosure, and the same result happens to them!

    this is just so awful that it makes me sick to my stomach, hunting does not involve killing trapped animals that are used to human contact, hunting is a skill that should only be used when it is done correctly, otherwise you are just a sad pathetic human being, it is so sad to me that we call them "animals" and we are the only ones that do this sort of thing...

    Just finished reading the book "Ishmael" by D. Quinn. Excellent book that shows humankind how screwed up we truly are as inhabitants of this beautiful planet. Seems to me we are hell-bent on our own destruction and won't be happy until we have completely fouled the world for all life. I hope our Mother allows us to destroy ourselves before we do more damage to Her and Her sacred beings...those content to live in harmony with natural law.

  13. how much to hunt the ranch owners?

    This is such an injustice. Do you honestly think that by doing this you're a supreme being? You're all cowards and you will pay dearly for what you do. Whether it be Karma or God, your time will come.

    I know that the YO Ranch is known for their exotic animal "Hunts" which this article said are known as "canned hunts". The owner of the YO Ranch,Charles Schreiner IV, lives in Salado,Texas now. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if he is behind this as he and his friends are ruthless.

  18. There is an abyss under rock bottom, apparently the dregs crawl out now and again to wreck havoc on innocent animals and leave humanity totally dismayed.

    Thank you for sharing the simplicity of life and it's beauty.
    I apologize for the many who have no respect for it.

  20. GNS1992 says:

    Absolutely shameful and these sick, bloodthirsty, gutless excuses for human beings need to be caged and disposed of!

  21. P Brenner says:

    The people doing this should be mounted on the wall, not the White Buffalo. Karma's a bitch and I pray it gets you good. Why on earth would you want to kill such a beautiful animal that there are mayby 50 left in extinction. They're to be admired from afar, not killed. U call urself a Hunter? Ur not. U don't need them for food to survive so LEAVE THEM ALONE. U truly have no conscious or respect for or precious wildlife. I pray for karma for whomever kills one of these beautiful creatures. This makes my blood boil.

    What gives the Texas Hunt Lodge the right to kill a animal that was created b God ? What kind of person would do this kind of thing ? If you have 18500.00 to blow , send it to the relief efforts everywhere to people that have nothing to eat or a roof over their heads.Look in the mirror and what do you see ? I will tell you a POS that needs to feel like he is special.

  28. Who has a right to collect monies for the killings? Bad enough that any one wants to kill these beautiful animals, but that someone says they have the right to be a money collector for it and someone is stupid enough to pay them shows the arrogance and lack of mentality we r dealing with. Come on people. Get out there and protect these creatures. Camp out if you have to.
