Wendell George | Why Native Americans have special respect for gravesites

For untold generations, stories circulated about our ancestors’ campgrounds in East Wenatchee. My dad, Moses, felt drawn there, so we moved to Grant Road and Kentucky Street. Much later, in 1987, 13,000-year-old Clovis spear points were discovered near Grant Road. The find included mammoth bone tools and evidence of giant sloths, camels, large bison and mastodon now extinct. The descendants of those people survived just like the Native Americans of today. Are they related?

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.
