Oregon: Three white bison calves were born on Mother's Day weekend near Bend, Oregon. They are the first ever born in the state and join a herd of 14 others who live in a private ranch.

White bison symbolize peace and prayer in certain Native American cultures.

"There are some prophecies that say if the buffalo come to the western shores, world peace will begin," said said Cynthia Hart-Button from the Sacred World Peace Alliance. "And we're seeing changes. It's a sign of change to the world."

Hart-Button said chances of a white buffalo being born is one in 10,000,000.

The original herd of 11 white buffalo came from Arizona last August when the owner of the herd's dying wish was that they move to greener pastures.

"We may have one, we may have two, but three? It means you guys have good grass in Oregon," said Hart-Button. "Good roots and good organic land here."

These newly born white bison are not albino -- those have pink noses and eyes. These rare white buffalo have brown noses and blue eyes.

The herd is in its fourth generation, and are DNA-tested to prove they are American bison.
