Wendell George | The mysteries of the medicine wheel

The Medicine Wheel is used in some form by many of the 562 tribes in the United States. But as independent thinkers we don’t agree on the sequence of the accepted colors red, yellow, black and white. Since most tribes didn’t have a written language we don’t know the beginning of the Medicine Wheel. There is evidence that it moved up from the Mayans to the Yaquis, Hopi, Cherokee, Sioux and on to other tribes. I first encountered it in the early 1970s on the Colville Indian Reservation.
