The White Buffalo
Excerpted from: Miracle: By
Isthmus Newspaper, Madison, WI; Nov. 25-Dec 1, 1994
"To tell the truth, the first
time I looked out there, I saw a million dollars," says
Janesville farmer Dave Heider as he watches Miracle, the white
buffalo calf, chew contentedly on a mouthful of silage.
"But once I saw how much this
calf means to so many people, I couldn't see charging money for
people to come and look at her. I mean, how can you put a price
on something that's sacred and holy?"
The Heiders knew from contacts in
the bison industry that their calf was unusual; in fact, the
Wisconsin Farmer and The Beloit Daily News both
did stories about its birth. But it was only after the story
got wider distribution that they learned Miracle was held sacred
by Plains Indians, including the Lakota and the Cheyenne.
News of the calf spread quickly through
the Native American community because its birth fulfilled a 2,000-year-old
prophecy of northern Plains Indians. Joseph Chasing Horse, traditional
leader of the Lakota nation, said that 2,000 years ago a young
woman who first appeared in the shape of a white buffalo gave
the Lakotas' ancestors a sacred pipe and sacred ceremonies and
made them guardians of the Black Hills. Before leaving, she also
promised that one day she would return to purify the world, bringing
back spiritual balance and harmony; the birth of a white buffalo
calf would be a sign that her return was at hand.
Despite her enormous spiritual and
cultural significance, Miracle isn't scientifically important.
UW-Madison geneticist Dr. Richard Spritz, an expert in albinism
and other pigmentation disorders, disputes news reports that
the odds of a white buffalo being born are less than one in 10
"In humans, the frequency of
albinism in most populations is about one in 15,000, which turns
out to be a pretty handy number for buffalo because the estimated
number of them in the U.S. is something around 150,000. That
means, that any given time, if the frequency of albinism in buffalo
is similar to that in humans, there ought to be 10 white buffalo
But even if other white buffalo have
been born in modern times, Miracle holds special significance
for Native Americans. She's female, and the bull that sired her
died, just as in the prophecy. And, while recent visitors to
the Heider farm are sometimes disappointed that the calf's head
has turned brown and its body is now a silvery tan, versions
of the prophecy state that the white buffalo calf would change
colors four times, thus signifying the colors of the four peoples
she would unify: black, red, yellow, and white.
Joseph Chasing Horse, in a phone
interview from his home in Rapid City, S.D., adds that winter
counts -- which date the telling of the White Buffalo Calf Woman
story in sacred ceremonies -- confirm that this is the buffalo
calf of the prophecy.
Larry Johns, a member of the Oneida
tribe who works to preserve Indian mounds and other sacred sites,
stresses the cultural importance of such recent discoveries as
the Gottschall Rock Shelter in Iowa County, which includes a
rock painting from CE 900 that tells a story still told by Ho-Chunk
"My father and grandfather went
to Indian schools, and they were beaten for speaking their language,"
says Johns, who along with fellow Oneida and representatives
of other tribes has helped put together the new Native American
Council of Madison, a group dedicated to promoting cultural awareness.
"They tried to beat the Indian out of us. It's imperative
that we go back to these stories and find out what they mean
to us -- and who we are."
And how does Miracle fit into all
of this? Says Johns, "There's so little understanding of
Native American issues and ideas that any opportunity to get
people interested -- even if it's just coming to see a white
buffalo calf -- is a good thing."
No matter what happens to Miracle
in the coming months and years, Joseph Chasing Horse says the
birth is a sign from the Great Spirit and the ensuing age of
harmony and balance it represents cannot be revoked. That doesn't
mean that the severe trials Native Americans have endured since
the arrival of Europeans on these shores are over. Indeed, the
Lakota nation mounted the longest court case in U.S. history
in an unsuccessful effort to regain control of the Black Hills,
the sacred land on which the White Buffalo Calf Woman appeared
2,000 years ago.
"Mention that we are praying,
many of the medicine people, the spiritual leaders, the elders,
are praying for the world," says Joseph Chasing Horse. "We
are praying that mankind does wake up and think about the future,
for we haven't just inherited this earth from our ancestors,
but we are borrowing it from our unborn children."

White Buffalo Calf Woman Brings
The First Pipe
As told by: Joseph Chasing
We Lakota people have a prophecy
about the white buffalo calf. How that prophecy originated was
that we have a sacred bundle, a sacred peace pipe, that was brought
to us about 2,000 years ago by what we know as the White Buffalo
The story goes that she appeared
to two warriors at that time. These two warriors were out hunting
buffalo, hunting for food in the sacred Black Hills of South
Dakota, and they saw a big body coming toward them. And they
saw that it was a white buffalo calf. As it came closer to them,
it turned into a beautiful young Indian girl.
That time one of the warriors thought
bad in his mind, and so the young girl told him to step forward.
And when he did step forward, a black cloud came over his body,
and when the black cloud disappeared, the warrior who had bad
thoughts was left with no flesh or blood on his bones. The other
warrior kneeled and began to pray.
And when he prayed, the white buffalo
calf who was now an Indian girl told him to go back to his people
and warn them that in four days she was going to bring a sacred
So the warrior did as he was told.
He went back to his people and he gathered all the elders and
all the leaders and all the people in a circle and told them
what she had instructed him to do. And sure enough, just as she
said she would, on the fourth day she came.
They say a cloud came down from the
sky, and off of the cloud stepped the white buffalo calf. As
it rolled onto the earth, the calf stood up and became this beautiful
young woman who was carrying the sacred bundle in her hand.
As she entered into the circle of
the nation, she sang a sacred song and took the sacred bundle
to the people who were there to take of her. She spent four days
among our people and taught them about the sacred bundle, the
meaning of it.
She taught them seven sacred ceremonies.
One of them was the sweat lodge,
or the purification ceremony. One of them was the naming ceremony,
child naming. The third was the healing ceremony. The fourth
one was the making of relatives or the adoption ceremony. The
fifth one was the marriage ceremony. The sixth was the vision
quest. And the seventh was the sundance ceremony, the people's
ceremony for all of the nation.
She brought us these seven sacred
ceremonies and taught our people the songs and the traditional
ways. She instructed our people that as long as we performed
these ceremonies we would always remain caretakers and guardians
of sacred land.
When she was done teaching all our
people, she left the way she came. She went out of the circle,
and as she was leaving she turned and told our people that she
would return one day for the sacred bundle. And she left the
sacred bundle, which we still have to this very day.
The sacred bundle is known as the
White Buffalo Calf Pipe because it was brought by the White Buffalo
Calf Woman. It is kept in a sacred place (Green Grass) on the
Cheyenne River Indian reservation in South Dakota. It's kept
by a man who is known as the keeper of the White Buffalo Calf
Pipe, Arvol Looking Horse.
When White Buffalo Calf Woman promised
to return again, she made some prophecies at that time.
One of those prophesies was that
the birth of a white buffalo calf would be a sign that it would
be near the time when she would return again to purify the world.
What she meant by that was that she would bring back harmony
again and balance, spiritually.

Prophecies of the Q'ero Incan Shamans
[From a Report by Brad Berg] The
light of idealism gleamed in his eyes as Dr. Alberto Villoldo
described how an earthquake in 1949 underneath a monastery near
Cuzco, Peru, had rent the ground asunder, exposing an ancient
Incan temple of gold. This fulfilled a sign that the prophecies
of Mosoq, the "time to come," were now to be shared
with the modern world. Dr. Villoldo, a psychologist and medicinal
anthropologist, has lived among and trained with the Q'ero shamans
and has played a key role in bringing their ritual and prophecy
to the awareness of the modern world.
The Q'ero are the last of the Incas
-- a tribe of 600 who sought refuge at altitudes above 14,000
feet in order to escape the conquering conquistadors. For 500
years the Q'ero elders have preserved a sacred prophecy of a
great change, or "pachacuti," in which the world would
be turned right-side-up, harmony and order would be restored,
and chaos and disorder ended.
The Q'ero had lived in their villages
high in the Andes in virtual solitude from the world until their
"discovery" in 1949. In that year, Oscar Nunez del
Prado, an anthropologist, was at a festival in Paucartambo, in
southern Peru, when he met two Indians speaking fluent Quecha,
the language of the Incas. The first Western expedition to the
Q'ero villages then occurred in 1955.
Four years later, at the annual Feast
of The Return of the Pleiades taking place in the Andes, the
gathering of 70,000 pilgrims from South America were awed, and
the crowd parted to let the Q'ero, unannounced and wearing the
Incan emblem of the sun, make their way forward to the mountain
top to make known that the time of the prophecies was at hand.
They were welcomed by the assembly and were told, "We've
been waiting for you for 500 years."
Recently, Q'ero elders journeyed
to North America in fulfillment of their prophecies. In November
1996, a small group of Q'ero, including the tribal leader and
the head shaman, visited several cities in the US, including
New York, where they performed a private ceremony at the Cathedral
of St. John the Divine. The shamanic ritual had not been performed
for 500 years. But in the very home of those who symbolized the
former conquerors of their Incan ancestors they shared their
ritual and knowledge, not only with interested Westerners who
were learning their ways, but also with the Dean of the great
cathedral, thereby symbolically and spiritually linking the two
continents of North and South America.
According to ancient prophecy, this
is the time of the great gathering called the "mastay"
and reintegration of the peoples of the four directions. The
Q'ero are releasing their teachings to the West, in preparation
for the day the Eagle of the North and the Condor of the South
(the Americas) fly together again. They believe that "munay,"
love and compassion, will be the guiding force of this great
gathering of the peoples.
"The new caretakers of the Earth
will come from the West, and those that have made the greatest
impact on Mother Earth now have the moral responsibility to remake
their relationship with Her, after remaking themselves,"
said Don Antonio Morales, a master Q'ero shaman. The prophecy
holds that North America will supply the physical strength, or
body; Europe will supply the mental aspect, or head; and the
heart will be supplied by South America.
When the Spanish conquered the Incas
500 years ago, the last pachacuti, or great change, occurred.
The Q'ero have been waiting ever since for the next pachacuti,
when order would emerge out of chaos. For the past five centuries
they preserved their sacred knowledge, and finally, in recent
years, the signs were fulfilled that the great time of change
was at hand: the high mountain lagoons have dried, the condor
is nearly extinct and the discovery of the Golden Temple has
occurred, following the earthquake in 1949 which represented
the wrath of the sun.
The prophecies are optimistic. They
refer to the end of time as we know it -- the death of a way
of thinking and a way of being, the end of a way of relating
to nature and to the earth. In the coming years, the Incas expect
us to emerge into a golden age, a golden millennium of peace.
The prophecies also speak of tumultuous changes happening in
the earth, and in our psyche, redefining our relationships and
The next pachacuti, or great change,
has already begun, and it promises the emergence of a new human
after this period of turmoil. The chaos and upheaval characteristic
of this period will last another four years, according to the
Q'ero. The paradigm of European civilization will continue to
collapse, and the way of the Earth people will return. Even more
importantly, the shamanic elders speak about a tear in the fabric
of time itself. This presents an opportunity for us to describe
ourselves not as who we have been in the past but as who we are
Pachacuti also refers to a great
Incan leader who lived in the late 1300s. He is said to have
built Machu Picchu and was the architect of an empire the size
of the US. For the Incas, Pachacuti is a spiritual prototype
-- a Master, a luminous one who stepped outside of time. He was
a messiah, but not in the Christian sense of the only son of
God, beyond the reach of humanity. Rather he is viewed as a symbol
and promise of who we all might become. He embodies the essence
of the prophecies of the pachacuti, as Pacha means "earth"
or "time," and cuti means "to set things right."
His name also means "transformer of the earth."
The prophecies of the pachacuti are
known throughout the Andes. There are those who believe the prophecies
refer to the return of the leader Pachacuti to defeat those who
took the Incas' land. But according to Dr. Villoldo, the return
of Pachacuti is taking place on the collective level. "It's
not the return of a single individual who embodies what we're
becoming, but a process of emergence available to all peoples."
The Q'ero have served as the caretakers
of the rites and prophecies of their Inca ancestors. The prophecies
are of no use unless one has the keys, the rites of passage.
The Star Rites, or "Mosoq Karpay" (The Rites of the
Time to Come), are crucial to the practical growth described
in the prophecies. Following the "despachos" (ritualistic
offerings of mesa, or medicine bundles) at the recent ceremony
in New York City, the shamans administered the Mosoq Karpay to
the individuals present, transmitting the energies originating
with the ancestors of their lineage.
The transmission of the Mosoq Karpay
is the ceremony representing the end of one's relationship to
time. It is a process of the heart. This process of Becoming
is considered more important than the prophecies themselves.
The Karpay (rites) plant the seed of knowledge, the seed of Pachacuti,
in the luminous body of the recipient. It is up to each person
to water and tend the seed so that it can grow and blossom. The
rites are a transmission of potential; one must then make oneself
available to destiny.
The Karpays connect the person to
an ancient lineage of knowledge and power that cannot be accessed
by the individual -- it can only be summoned by a tribe. Ultimately,
this power can provide the impetus for one to leap into the body
of an Inca, a Luminous One. That person is connected directly
to the stars, the Incan Sun of cosmology.
The Q'ero believe that the doorways
between the worlds are opening again -- holes in time that we
can step through and beyond, where we can explore our human capabilities.
Regaining our luminous nature is a possibility today for all
who dare to take the leap."
The Andean shamans say, "Follow
your own footsteps. Learn from the rivers, the trees and the
rocks. Honor the Christ, the Buddha, your brothers and sisters.
Honor the Earth Mother and the Great Spirit. Honor yourself and
all of creation."
"Look with the eyes of your
soul and engage the essential," is the teaching of the Q'ero.
