The Role of the Medicine Wheel in Cherokee History
The medicine wheel is not an ancient Cherokee word. It is however a concept used by contemporary Cherokee artists of all disciplines. The reason the medicine wheel is a popular native expression is because it represents core principles shared by many indigenous cultures.
Medicine Wheel Symbolism
In addition to being a symbol of the natural cycles of life, the medicine wheel can also represent the Four Directions: Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. Medicine wheels can also incorporate images that tell the story of creation and represent deities like Father Sky, Mother Earth, and the Great Spirit. It can also be a way to tell the history of any individual tribe through a collectively accepted image. In modern Cherokee and native art, the medicine wheel can become an even more personally meaningful symbol of the artist’s own creative journey. The medicine wheel was thought to also show the path to healing, health, and balance.
