The Sacred White Buffalo is an animal that is revered by Native Americans, particularly the Plains Indian tribes of the northern Midwest, like the Lakota. A Texas company will allow anyone with a lot of money to shoot one of these beautiful beasts in what is called "a canned hunt". When wild animals like buffalo are raised almost as domesticated pets and have no fear of people and are rather friendly, then are placed in pens or even cages, there is no danger when a hunter invades the space and kills them with a high-powered rifle. This is a canned hunt and James Magaska Swan, a leading Native American activist and an enrolled member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, part of the Lakota Nation, has a few things to say about the slaughter of the Sacred White Buffalo and canned hunts in this "Daily Kos" feature.
