Despite the death of two treasured buffalo, the Lightning Medicine Cloud Annual Greenville Scholarship Native American Powwow will proceed as planned at Lakota Ranch.
Someone killed a white buffalo named "Lightning Medicine Cloud" last month, just shy of its first birthday. It was considered sacred in Native American culture. Its mother also was killed.
The powwow was originally to be a birthday celebration for Lightning Medicine Cloud. It will now serve as a memorial to the buffalo.
The reward for information leading to the buffalo's killer now stands $45,000. You can donate to the reward fund by clicking here.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Hunt County Sheriff's Department.
