White Buffalo Calf Born in Goshen, Connecticut

A male white buffalo calf was born in Goshen, Connecticut last month.  Next week, the Lakota elders and about 2000 others will visit the farm to name the white calf in an elaborate ceremony.  You can see a video at this link:

Here’s another article about the birth of the bison.  He’s already special.  The day after he was born, he escaped into the field of bulls, and lived, unharmed.

Here’s some information about a naming ceremony that took place in 2011 in Texas for another white bison calf.

Sadly, that calf was murdered two weeks before his first birthday.  Let’s hope Peter Fay can keep this white buffalo calf safe in Connecticut.
