White Cloud, the albino bison, stands with her calf named Dakota Miracle in a pasture at the National Buffalo Museum in Jamestown, North Dakota, USA. The white bison is sacred to most Plains Indian tribes and is often seen as a sign of great changes in the world. To some tribes it is a blessing. Others believe it is a sign of peace, prosperity, unity and hope.
Native Americans wore the traditional garb of their ancestors, sang songs and beat drums on a western Connecticut farm Saturday in celebration of the birth of one of the world's rarest animals – a white bison.
