GREENVILLE There was a big event for a little white buffalo on Wednesday.

Hundreds of people were on hand for a naming ceremony for the rare white buffalo born in Greenville last month.

The buffalo calf was born into a legacy that the Lakota Sioux say spans hundreds of years.

The calf will be called Lightning Medicine Cloud: because he was born during a lightning storm.

It's a religious aspect that a lot of the plains tribes revere, explained Terry Ashby of Frisco. This is a prophecy that has basically come true.

Native American elders say the calf is only the third of his kind.
