Killing of a Sacred White Buffalo (3/28/00)

Date of this Version

March 2000


The white buffalo calf has a significant role in Lakota spirituality. When Medicine Wheel was born four years ago it marked the only time a white buffalo calf had been born on tribal lands in the twentieth century and it was viewed as a symbol of hope and a sign of rebirth by many tribal members. Recently, this sacred animal was murdered on the Pine Ridge Reservation. What does this mean to the Lakota and other Native people? Guests include Floyd Hand of the Oglala Nation.
