Ghost Dance Creating a Medicine Wheel that one of the Dancers Will Be Ho...

I decided to add a sacred Medicine Wheel to this piece today. Lakota Medicine Wheel The Native American medicine wheel is a sacred symbol used by indigenous Plains tribes to represent all knowledge of the universe. Circle - The circle represents the sacred outer boundary of the Earth often referred to as the Sun Dance Circle or the Sacred Hoop. It represents the continuous pattern of on-going life and death. Lines - The horizontal and vertical lines represent the sun and man’s sacred paths; the crossing of the two lines indicates the center of the Earth where one stands when praying.
