On November 22, 2008, my friend Christopher O’Brien and myself,
drove 20 miles north of Flagstaff, Arizona, just below the Grand Canyon,
to film a promotional video he wished to create to help these buffalo.

The story is incredibly moving with the journey of the Riley family,
from Wyoming to South Dakota to Arizona,
the births of now eleven Sacred White Buffalo,
the unexpected death of Dena’s husband Jim, in April of 2008,
and the love they carry for these beautiful animals.

In the Spring of 1997, a female white buffalo was born
on the edge of the black hills of Wyoming.
At the time of her birth, a young bull in the pasture
tried to kill her by flipping her fifteen feet in the air.

Jim Riley was there and witnessed the event.

Risking his own life,
he rushed to save the newborn from the bull
which, flipped her a second time.

She did make it thanks to Jim and her name became “Miracle Moon”.

Only one in ten million buffalo is born white.

This is Miracle Moon with her baby Rainbow Spirit.

The White Buffalo are sacred to many Native Americans.
The Lakota (Sioux) Nation has passed down
The Legend of the White Buffalo
a story now approximately 2,000 years old
at many council meetings, sacred ceremonies,
and through the tribe’s storytellers.
There are several variations, but all are meaningful,
and tell of the same outcome.

Have communication with the Creator through prayer
with clear intent for Peace, Harmony and Balance
for all life living in the Earth Mother.

I had never seen a wild buffalo in person.
All I can say is they are incredibly powerful in their spirit.
You can feel it and see it in their eyes.
Very majestic and magical.

Wherever the signs for peace come in
Through a legend or an intention
Is more important than anything
Peace is rising and growing.

The buffalo are now in Oregon!
They still need any support you can offer to help feed them.
