Ten years ago I was invited to a drumming ceremony near my ranch in Oregon. I had been told there was a small herd of white buffalo pastured nearby. After being blessed and smudged, I was allow to see the buffalo. Six white bulls appeared. We drummed and they danced. It was the Winter Solstice. The very next day the herd was gone, seeking a new hiding place. Now every once in a while I revisit that memory and make another White Buffalo Box. it seems right to make another now as we approach the Winter Solstice of 2020. What a year! White Buffalo magic is more than welcome in times like these.
