Exerpts from White Buffalo
Hau Kola. Hello, friend.
I, Chief Arvol Looking Horse, greet you on behalf of the Pte Oyate,
the Buffalo People, the First People, the Original People. We come
from The Heart of Everything That Is, the sacred Paha Sapa, known to
most as the Black Hills of South Dakota.
We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We
see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We
see what's going to happen, what will surely happen unless we come
together-we, the Peoples of all Nations-to restore peace and harmony
and balance to the Earth, our Mother.
This new millennium will usher in an age of harmony-or it will bring
the end of life as we know it. Starvation, war and toxic waste have
been the hallmark of the Great Myth of Progress and Development that
ruled the last millennium. To us, as caretakers of the heart of Mother
Earth, falls the responsibility of turning back the powers of
destruction. We have come to a time and place of great urgency. The
fate of future generations rests in our hands.
...... When I was 12 years old, words of our ancient Prophecies
were instilled in me by our Spiritual Elders of that time. Those
Prophecies concern drastic changes that would come to all life upon
Mother Earth. These changes are here with us today!
Our Prophecies tell us that we are at the
Crossroads. We face chaos, disaster, and endless tears from our
relatives’ eyes, or we can unite spiritually in peace and harmony.
It’s time to bring the Message of the urgent need for Peace, of
creating an energy shift throughout the world.
As Keeper of the Sacred C’anupa Bundle, I ask for your
prayers for Global Healing. Our Mother Earth is suffering. Her
wonderful gifts—the water, the trees, the air—are being abused.
Her children—the two-legged, the four-legged, those that swim, crawl
and fly—are being annihilated. We see such atrocities occurring
...... Nineteen generations ago the beautiful spirit we now refer
to as Pte-san win-yan (White Buffalo Calf Woman) brought the
Sacred C’anupa to our People. She taught the People the Seven Sacred
Rites and how to walk on Mother Earth in a sacred manner. She said,
"Only the good shall see the Pipe…the bad shall not see it or
She arrived among us in this way—
At that time, not long after the Flood, the
People still followed the buffalo, but they had forgotten the Creator
and the teachings of the buffalo. They were trying to control one
another, be more than who they were. The buffalo disappeared and the
People were starving and crying. They grew too weak even to move camp,
and so they sent out scouts to look for buffalo or other game. But
always they returned empty-handed.
Then one day they sent out two scouts, who
saw not even a rabbit the whole day. Dejected, they started back to
camp from their failed hunt, traveling through the woods and rolling
hills, northeast of the sacred Black Hills, just up the river from
where I live today.....
Peace and Prayer Day Statement for 2002
Mitakuye (my relative),
From our Sacred Alters to Global Prophecies, it has been confirmed
that we must continue to bring the message of Peace throughout the
World. As we open our hands to the Creator, we must bring our hearts
together. Purity and compassion must flow together to bring health and
happiness to all the Nations of Mother Earth, creating an energy shift
From the "Heart of Everything That Is", we have a Prophecy
about the "White Buffalo Calf". The Bundle that I care for,
called the "White Buffalo Calf Pipe", has an ancient story
foretelling the signs we should look for in the future. They speak of
a day when a white buffalo calf will stand upon Mother Earth. It will
have black hoofs, eyes and nose. Ten have been born since 1994. This
would bring us an awareness that we are at the Crossroads. We will be
faced with chaos, sickness, continued diseases, and tears from our
relative's eyes unless we unite spiritually. Scientific findings have
confirmed that the violations against Mother Earth have caused the
lack of energy to sustain our planet and our future. We have no choice
but to stand together in prayer.
2002, the 7th year of our commitment, brings us to Durban, South
Africa for the World Peace and Prayer Day event. In a settlement
called Phoenix, founded by the re-known Peace Leader Mahatma Gandhi. A
significant place where he lived, taught and worshipped, teaching the
importance of respect and honoring one another's diverse beliefs in
the Creator. We are happy to announce the assistance of Ela Gandhi in
this year's organizing, Mahatma Gandhi's Granddaughter.
We are asking each one of you to pray with us on June 21st. Honoring
all Sacred Sites upon Mother Earth. I am praying that one day this
important day can be recognized worldwide as "Honoring Sacred
Sites Day". A time that we all can have a chance to come together
and pray for our future generations!
In the Sacred Hoop of Life, where there is no ending and no beginning!
