I, Chief Arvol Looking Horse, Nineteenth Generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe, would like to send a message to the People about Miracle, the Sacred White Buffalo, in Janesville, Wisconsin.

We have a prophecy which I've heard since my early years of the age of twelve that someday the spirit of the White Buffalo Calf Woman would stand upon Mother Earth.  At that time, great changes would happen to Mother Earth.  In 1994, Miracle was the first white buffalo to be born.  Now, eight have been born, signifying a great urgency!

It was prophesized that it will take many prayers to heal the global changes.  And through a ceremony we had with Miracle, we were told that she would also go through changes, color changes, symbolizing humanity and the Global Community.  She would be born white and then go through the changes of black, red, and yellow, finally returning to her original white robe through the power of prayer.

We ask the people of the Global Community to pray with us for global healing.  In turn, when our prayers reach that strength toward positive change, we will also witness Miracle go through the changes of standing upon this Sacred Mother Earth as a White Buffalo once again, symbolizing peace and harmony.

In the Sacred Hoop of Life, where there is no beginning or ending, may Peace be with you all.

Mitakuye Oyasin,
