AND YOU ARE INVITED!!!!!!!!              

        August 20th marks the 9th birthday of Miracle, the Sacred White Buffalo. Her importance to Indian people, as well as all the world's people, cannot be understated. She is the manifestation of prophecy. If you are not familiar with her story, please visit her official website. Miracle, the Sacred White Buffalo.  

         Once again Miracle's guardians, Dave and Valerie Heider, invite all to join in prayers and celebrations on Miracle's special day.   If you cannot attend the ceremonies in person, Miracle's official webmistress, Stephanie Schwartz, and Native Village invite you to join us in sending birthday prayers or messages to Miracle.    We will compile your writings into a special birthday book and forward it to the Heiders.  The book will be held during the morning ceremonies and prayer circle, then displayed in Miracle's little gift shop.

          Your messages to Miracle will appear only in her birthday book.  They will not be reposted on the web.    We are grateful to the Heiders for accepting and supporting our plans for this birthday card.

Happy Birthday Miracle ... 
and thank you!
