A letter from Chief Arvol Looking Horse
(Present Chief and Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe of the Lakota, Dakota, Nakota Nation of the Sioux)
Gulf Coast Oil Spill - Sioux Prayer Request

****** A Great Urgency ******
To All World Religious and Spiritual Leaders

My Relatives,
Time has come to speak to the hearts of our Nations and their
Leaders. I ask you this from the bottom of my heart, to come together
from the Spirit of your Nations in prayer.

We, from the heart of Turtle Island, have a great message for the
World; we are guided to speak from all the White Animals showing
their sacred color, which have been signs for us to pray for the
sacred life of all things. As I am sending this message to you, many
Animal Nations are being threatened, those that swim, those that
crawl, those that fly, and the plant Nations, eventually all will be
affect from the oil disaster in the Gulf.

The dangers we are faced with at this time are not of spirit. The
catastrophe that has happened with the oil spill which looks like the
bleeding of Grandmother Earth, is made by human mistakes, mistakes
that we cannot afford to continue to make.

I asked, as Spiritual Leaders, that we join together, united in
prayer with the whole of our Global Communities. My concern is these
serious issues will continue to worsen, as a domino effect that our
Ancestors have warned us of in their Prophecies.

I know in my heart there are millions of people that feel our united
prayers for the sake of our Grandmother Earth are long overdue. I
believe we as Spiritual people must gather ourselves and focus our
thoughts and prayers to allow the healing of the many wounds that
have been inflicted on the Earth. As we honor the Cycle of Life, let
us call for Prayer circles globally to assist in healing Grandmother
Earth (our Unc'I Maka).

We ask for prayers that the oil spill, this bleeding, will stop. That
the winds stay calm to assist in the work. Pray for the people to be
guided in repairing this mistake, and that we may also seek to live
in harmony, as we make the choice to change the destructive path we
are on.

As we pray, we will fully understand that we are all connected. And
that what we create can have lasting effects on all life.

So let us unite spiritually, All Nations, All Faiths, One Prayer.
Along with this immediate effort, I also ask to please remember June
21st, World Peace and Prayer Day/Honoring Sacred Sites day. Whether
it is a natural site, a temple, a church, a synagogue or just your
own sacred space, let us make a prayer for all life, for good
decision making by our Nations, for our children's future and
well-being, and the generations to come.

Onipikte (that we shall live),
Chief Arvol Looking Horse
19th generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe


"When the power of wealth has dominated justice,
with the concept of fiction-money leading to utter destruction;

when the Holy Spirit, driven ever further away on its
path of ascension has again reached zenith,

to the undoing of so much near and dear to us-
let us, in spite of what occurs before our eyes,

invoke that same Divine Spirit through love and beauty,
that we may restore order and balance to humanity.

--Samuel L. Lewis,"Spiritual Dancing"

I've never seen anything but a white ring. Scientifically speaking, it's caused by excess humidity in the air, which obviously amounts to rain the next day. I suppose at more northern locations, the aurora might make it different colors...?
Comment by karen on November 16, 2008 at 12:32am
ya something like that but she had something for the color of the ring that i can't remember and she passed over in '78. hard to findout what it was now...lol

Karen -I think it's usually, Ring around the moon, rain will come soon.
