Another White Bison Born - a Significant Native American Indian Event

On September 21, 2005, a white bison calf was born on an Athabascan buffalo reserve owned by Stephan Denis in Valley-of-Lakes, Quebec, Canada. The newborn baby is a female and was named Prophecy. According to Denis, this is the 7th white buffalo calf born in recent years starting from 1995 with the birth of a white bison female in Wisconsin named Miracle who was the first white female to be born in generations. At once, a traditional Lakota medicine man, Floyd Hand, said: "For us the Indians, it is like the Return of Christ for the white." This is such a significant Native American Indian event that there has been artwork depicting white bisons. One such Canadian aboriginal art piece was put on a Canadian coin - see Coins with Canadian Aboriginal Art.
