At the end of retreat at Earthfire, a Native American woman and a pipe-carrier for the Lakota Nation said, “You need a white buffalo,” and gifted us Nima. Prayers are offered for her regularly from afar by the pipe-carrier as they consider her to be growing into her wisdom. White bison are the rare result of a genetic mutation. They’re considered to be a manifestation of the belief that all things on Earth are connected, resulting in abundance for all.
