Stop the White Buffalo Trophy Hunt

A White Buffalo is sacred to many indigenous nations and others who believe in their ways. Killing and hunting one, especially for sport, is a horrific thought. It also takes many back to the senseless slaughter during the time of western expansion of buffalo for their tongues that almost exterminated the buffalo.

According to Wikipedia, white buffalo are extremely rare with the National Bison Association estimating that they only occur in approximately one out of every 10 million births.

The Texas Hunt Lodge is advertising on their website the ‘opportunity to hunt and harvest the Authentic and Rare White Buffalo’ for the Trophy Fee of $13,500. The advertisement can be seen here - http://www.texashuntlodge.com/white_buffalo_hunt_package.asp.

Native Americans see the white buffalo not as a huge trophy, but as a hugely significant part of Native culture. The esteemed Lakota spiritual leader John Lame Deer called the white buffalo “the most sacred living thing you could ever encounter.” Oglala Sioux spiritual leader Floyd Looks for Buffalo Hand, a grandson of Red Cloud, is quoted as saying “The arrival of the white buffalo is like the second coming of Christ. … It will bring about purity of mind, body, and spirit and unify all nations—black, red, yellow, and white.”

Understandably this trophy hunt being offered by the Texas Hunt Lodge has alarmed many Native Americans and others. Please add your voice to ours in telling the Texas Hunt Lodge that you do not condone the senseless slaughter of the sacred White Buffalo.

      Even a non-native person should see that this killing is satanic.

      Hasn't enough been done to desecrate and destroy that which is part of Native American culture?

      I am a registered member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation and this is a sacralidge. It is an afffront to my native culture and people. I think the people who promote this should be charged with a fdelony and put in jail. This is an endangered species at the very least it is so rare a creature it should be protected at all costs. Shame on you hunters for trophy, maybe we should hunt you. It would be time better spent!

      Why did someone think this was a good idea? In the Choctaw Nation we protect buffalo!
