The Medicine Wheel, or Circle of Life, is found in many tribes and in many parts of the world, but there are beliefs common to them all. The compass points North, South, East and West give four directions. Mother Earth is below and Father Sky is above, giving six directions. These six directions are also symbolized by animal fetish carvings.
The circle shape
represents life. We change like the seasons as we pass through life, traveling
through the part of the circle. The center of the circle is the Spirit, from which
everything extends and everything returns.
