Alternate Perceptions

Alternate Perceptions, formerly UFO Perceptions, was founded in 1986 by White Buffalo-Eagle Wing, Inc., as a UFO periodical serving the Mid-South region of the United States. In the late 1990s it broadened its area of concern and has emerged as a newsstand magazine covering UFOs, paranormal events, and their links to the Native American community. This latter aspect gives the magazine its uniqueness.

White Buffalo-Eagle Wing, Inc., published the books of Alternate Perceptions' associate editor, Dr. Greg L. Little, that have argued for a connection between such paranormal occurrences as the near-death experience, UFO abductions, and ghostly apparitions on the one hand, and Native American spiritualism and ancient rituals on the other. Underlying all is a spectral reality. Ancient Native Americans located specific places to hold their rituals that had electromagnetic anomalies. Rituals performed at such sacred sites caused a spectrum of mental and visual manifestations. Such electromagnetic anomalies hold the answer to recent phenomena experienced in the general population.

While the unique perspective guides the magazine's editorial policy, each issue includes a wide selection of articles written by a variety of authors not connected with the editorial staff. Articles touch on UFOs, Native American archeology, holistic health, and human potentials. There are also a set of columns covering recent news of UFOs and paranormal experiences and a book review section. Significant space is given to lettersto-the-editor. There is a minimum of advertising. Alternate Perceptions appears quarterly from its publishing offices at P.O. Box 830, Memphis, TN 38485. White Buffalo-Eagle Wing, Inc., has an Internet presence at White Eagle Books also publishes a line of psychological counseling texts.
