Most people are familiar with the story of the White Buffalo Calf Woman, who came to the Lakota bringing the canupa, the sacred pipe, the four values, and sacred ways of living. There is another White Buffalo story told by Phil Lane Jr. who is the president of the Four Winds International Institute.
Lane, who is an enrolled member of the Ihanktonwan Dakota and Chickasaw Nations, tells the story of the White Buffalo bull in a video below. He begins by sharing some words of wisdom: “How do you know what hatred is if you live in love,” says Chief Lane in the video. “How do you know what the destruction of Mother Earth is when you only respect her and love her.”
