The Sacred “Order of the White Buffalo”
To encourage tribes to communicate, participate, get involved in the community, and have an active fun time in the program, the Order of the White Buffalo was established. And to be as fair to everyone as possible, the requirements for this order were made non-competitive (between tribes); this makes it possible for EVERY tribe to be in the OWB!
Thus far, the OWB has been very successful; communication through Tribe Council Reports, participation and community involvement have improved the quality and increased the enjoyment of our programs.
