Sign of Good Tidings: A White Bison

A White Bison (American Buffalo) was born in Goshen Conneticutt recently.  It is a rare enough event that it is considered sacred in some Indian Tribes.  Yes Europeans, after we killed almost all the Indians, we have embraced those few that are left and draw some comfort from them.
A shaman (sha-woman actually) from the Oglala Lakota tribe is coming out to bless this birth.  The Oglala Lakota believe that a White Bison is "of the White Buffalo Calf Maiden, or Ptesan Wi. She is revered as a prophet, who in a time of famine taught the Lakotas seven sacred rituals and gave them their most important symbol of worship, the sacred pipe. "
So it is cool, and perhaps good tidings.
