Bullish for Peace

The likelihood of a white bison calf being born is less than one in a million. Yet 10 such calves have arrived in the past decade. The most recent one, this past summer, was the second born at a Janesville, Wisconsin farm. Sioux, Cheyenne and other Indian tribes are celebrating the phenomenon as an omen of the return of the prophesied White Buffalo Calf Woman, designated to bring peace and restore spiritual harmony to the world.
