This Prophecy of the White Buffalo has been kept within our Magaska Ptesan Wicoti, Hinhan Wicasa Oyate for more than 160 years.


My father was named Mato Gi, Brown Bear,by his Grandfather Tipi Sapa,Black Lodge after his elder brother, Mato Gi, who rode the Bay Horse, Eagle Claws, and slayed the White Buffalo Bull, as prophesied.

Tipi Sapa,Philip Deloria received his name from his father,Hinhan Wicasa, Owl Man, after a life changing Vision Hinhan Wicasa received as young man of 17 years at Medicine Butte, near what is now Pierre, South Dakota.My Uncle Vine Deloria Jr. describes this Vision, in detail, in his book, Singing for A Spirit,

My Grandfather Vine Deloria Sr, my Uncle Wilfred Cadotte told me this prophecy often, as well as my father, Mato Gi. I heard my father speak on several occasions about this Prophecy with his Elder Brother Henry Spotted Eagle and others when we visited Ihanktowan Territory over the years

Strangely, my 14 year old son was given the name Mato Gi by his grandfather before he died in 2004. It turns out the latest generation of our Oyate, who carries the name ,Mato Gi, was born on August 27, 2000, before the White Buffalo Day was declared to be August 27.

That is why I decided to share the White Buffalo Prophecy today, August 27, 2014. The time for the fulfillment of this Sacred Prophecy of the White Buffalo is now!

My Uncle Vine Deloria Jr. briefly mentions this story of the White Buffalo Prophecy of the Magaska Ptesan Wicoti ,Hinhan Wicasa Oyate, Ikanktonwan Oceti Sakowin in his book, Singing for a Spirit.

Many relatives are the direct carriers of the promises of this sacred Prophecy that was fulfilled by Mato Gi', the Bay Horse, Eagle Claws through the spiritual training and guidance of Hinhan Wicasa!

The Hereditary Chieftainship of Hinhan Wicasa was passed on to Tipi Sapa.

The deaf need captions, I found none.  Is there a written transcript somewhere?

What was the message in the original prophecy of the coming of the White Buffalo?  Was it "You will be tested?" or "Kill the White Buffalo?".  Dominion over the Earth does not mean to rape and kill our kinship that work for the Survival of life; such as the insects, birds, and humans.  There is a reason we find our self in a mass extinction that threatens the survival of all life on this planet.  Know how to nurture life of all kinds and walk in peace.
