So what is this?
The White Buffalo Project is a movement, a movement that gathers women together in authenticity. It's the battle for genuine connection during a time where we are encouraged to wear a mask, compete, and cut down. It's a project to create groups that pow wow around each other—groups that celebrate successes, but also lends a non-judgemental hand in the trenches. It's saying "me too.”
We are creating community all around Houston through events that invite women, of all backgrounds, to come together and change the conversation. We want to change the way women treat each other, change the culture of the community. And change ourselves.

How this thing got started…
Kendall had been in Houston for about a year and was desperately lonely. She had been on a search for good friends, not just the kind you have a drink out with and only casually talk to. She was looking for sisters. She was determined to find a HEALTHY community and had no real resource to find these women.
As she made more friends here and there, many of them brought up how much they were searching for the same thing—a solid community—and didn’t know where to look. So eventually Kendall decided that if the need was that great, she needed to create a resource for it.
Hailie was one of her first deep friendships in Houston. She trusted Hailie completely. One night in December 2014, Kendall asked Hailie to come over and chat after work. While sitting on the couch, Kendall poured out her heart, sharing an idea for what eventually turned into White Buffalo Project. The two women hugged and cried and set out on this mission together, hoping to share even just a little bit of love and hope with the women of the world. .
