White Buffalo Calf Woman

This is one of the deities I use. I find that she is very close to me. Please read about her and let me know what you think.

To the Native Americans the birth of a white buffalo is a symbol of rebirth and world harmony.

One summer, long ago, the seven sacred council fires of the Lakota Oyate, the nation, came together and camped. Every day they sent scouts to look for game, but the scouts found nothing, and the people were starving.

Among the bands assembled were the Itazipcho, the Without-Bows, who had their own camp circle under their chief, Standing Hollow Horn. Early one morning the chief sent two of his young men to hunt for game. They searched everywhere but could find nothing. Seeing a high hill, they decided to climb it in order to look over the whole country. Halfway up, they saw something coming toward them from far off, but the figure was floating instead of walking. From this they knew that the person was wakan, holy.

At first they could make out only a small moving speck and had to squint to see that it was a human form. But as it came nearer, they realized that it was a beautiful young woman, more beautiful than any they had ever seen. She wore a wonderful white buckskin outfit, tanned until it shone a long way in the sun. It was embroidered with sacred and marvelous designs of porcupine quill, in radiant colors no ordinary woman could have made. This wakan stranger was Ptesan-Wi, White Buffalo Calf Woman. In her hands she carried a large bundle and a fan of sage leaves. She wore her hair loose except for a strand at the left side, which was tied up with buffalo fur. Her eyes shone dark and sparkling, with great power in them.

The Drum and Our Heartbeat

This is information on what using a drum to accompany other instruments or by itself means to most Native Americans. Our coven Brother White Wolf wrote to friend and brother named Chief Golden Light Eagle.

Now on to the drumming information from Chief Golden Light Eagle via White Wolf…

“Whiteman uses drums in their dances — rock and roll, country and western and all sorts of other music categories — the sound of drums move people  in many different way.  So yes the heartbeat is what everyone depends on to stay alive – the drum helps us to remember our own heart – beat, our own breath and our life.

So yes the heartbeat is what everyone depends onto stay alive – the drum helps us to remember our own heartbeat, our own breath and our life.”

From White Wolf…

“The Native Americans believe that using a drum connects our heartbeat to Mother Earth’s heartbeat”
