The name of the White Buffalo Knife consulting business originates from the Shoshone-Paiute people. Many countless seconds and minutes were spent praying and pondering the idea of a name for my consulting business. One evening while walking my dog, a interesting name appeared before me.

The name encompasses my indigenous origions. I was born into the White Knife clan of my people. Many years ago my clan carried white stone knives and were known for their strong medicine. Also, I am a clan member of the Buffalo people.

The two clans that I originate from have been within my people for centuries. The indigenous idenity that I maintain in today's society continues to be strong. Because of my origins, I decided to intertwine the two clans together . The name WHITE BUFFALO KNIFE has a very strong, significant place in this life.

White Buffalo Knife consulting has worked for various agencies, organizations and institutions throughout the United States and Canada.
