Arvol Looking Horse was only 12 years old when he was given the great responsibility
of becoming the 19th generation keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe.
Since then he has dedicated his life to working for peace, freedom and healing
not only for his own People (the Lakota, Nakota and Dakota) but for all people
through sharing Native Prophecies. In 1993, Chief Looking Horse traveled to New
York with Elders of many Nations for the United Nations "Cry of the Earth" Conference
where he presented the opening prayer. When the prophesized White Buffalo was
born in Wisconsin in 1994, Chief Looking Horse took on the committment to organize
World Peace Day on June 21st, a day of uniting all Nations upon Grandmother Earth
to pray for her healing, to respect all life and to vow to make all decisions
with respect for 7 generations yet to come. He has traveled all around the world
sharing a message of peace for all nations, meeting with other spiritual leaders
dedicated to this vision, like the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu. In 1996 he received
the prestigous Canadian Wolf Award which is given to a person who has dedicated
his life to working for peace ,and that same year was invited to President Clinton's
inaguaration to speak about peace and unity. He has been on the Board of the World
Peace Prayer Society since the early 1990s, helping to fulfill their mission of
planting Peace Poles that share the universal prayer, 'May Peace Prevail On Earth'
in nearly every language on the planet. In 2006 Chief Looking Horse received the
Temple of Understanding's Juliet Hollister Award for his work in helping to unite
all Nations in the name of Peace.
