Rare & Sacred White Bison Named In Sioux Ceremony
[link to www.lifeslittlemysteries.com]

White bison are thought to wield great power in many Native American religions. Only one in 10 million bison is born white — the manifestation of an extremely rare genetic condition. That's why thousands of people came from miles around on Wednesday (June 29) to attend the naming ceremony of a white calf that was recently born on a Texas ranch.

The Native American tribesmen who led the ceremony named the seven-week-old male calf Lightning Medicine Cloud, or "Wakinyah Pejuta Mahpiya" in the Sioux language. According to the Associated Press, the name was a reference to the thunderstorm that marked the arrival of his birth as well as a tribute to a white bison born in 1933 named Big Medicine.
