Teachings come in many forms. Nature shows us that. Thoughts are teachers. Practices are too. When people invest in a form that form is enriched and attains an energy of its own, becomes alive. One of the most vital forms I have found is the Medicine Wheel.
The Medicine Wheel is an ancient circular symbol that has been used by the native peoples of this land. It also appears that the ancient Celtic people used such a wheel, and many of the ancient stone wheels in…
Resolution of the Fifth Annual Meetings of the Traditional Elders Circle, 1980 "There are many things to be shared with the Four Colors of humanity in our common destiny as one with our Mother the Earth.

“So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people.

Tie it up in knots to symbolize how "tied-up" you feel. Take it outside and let the wind blow it away along with your negativity. Go back inside and take a ritual bath or shower cleansing.

The American Indian is of the soil, whether it be the region of forests, plains,
mesas. He fits into the landscape, for the hand that fashioned the continent

A kitchen altar makes a vital, visual connection between you and your cooking activities and the Goddess. If the oven and stove, as modern equivalents of the hearth-fire, are the heart of the house, this altar will be the soul. Every time you see it, you will be reminded that what you do as a kitchen witch is vitally important. It will remind you that your kitchen is a sacred place. It will help you to remember that your ability to nourish… Continue

No better symbol exists of the pain and suffering of the Trail Where They Cried than the Cherokee Rose(pictured at top of page). The mothers of the Cherokee grieved so much that the chiefs prayed for a sign to lift the mother's spirits and give them strength to care for their children. From that day forward, a beautiful new flower, a rose, grew wherever a mother's tear fell to the ground. The rose is white, for the mother's tears. It has a gold… Continue
