GREENVILLE - It was scheduled to be a ceremony honoring the birth of a sacred white buffalo. But this weekend’s Native American Powwow will instead serve as a memorial for Lightning Medicine Cloud, who, along with his mother, were found dead last week.
Updated 4:45pm on 5-04-12 - GREENVILLE - Nearly a year after its birth and 10 months following a massive naming ceremony, Native Americans and fellow community members mourn the loss of Lightning Medicine Cloud.
GREENVILLE – Hundreds gathered Wednesday morning near Greenville to celebrate the birth of a rare white buffalo, now known as Lightning Medicine Cloud.
The calf was born to the herd of Arby Little Soldier, who says he chose the name because the animal was born during a thunderstorm on May 12 and as a tribute to the first known white buffalo in Texas born in 1933.
The birth of a white buffalo is an estimated one in 10 million occurrence.
