There is a traditional Lakota story. It is told that a beautiful woman appeared and gave the tribes profound teachings. She gave them seven sacred ceremonies to protect Mother Earth and the ceremonial pipe. After imparting the wisdom she transformed into a white buffalo calf. To this day the white buffalo remains a symbol of that mystical appearance of ‘White Buffalo Calf Woman.’

  1. So beautiful. Gretchen, you make everything better…all the time. Much love to you.

  2. This is so beautiful, the backstory is wonderful. You truly make us think about the wonderful creatures that we share this earth with.

  3. Reblogged this on Jamie Dedes' THE POET BY DAY Webzine and commented:
    Rest from the pandemic with a moment of peace from the inimitable sacred art painter, Gretchen Del Rio.

  4. What a beautiful story and a beautiful painting!
