The Cree Tribe
1. The Cree tribe made the medicine wheel.
2. The four corners on the medicine whell represent the seasons.
3. The north represents the winter, the west is the fall, the south is the summer and the east is the spring.
4.The four seasons of the wheel represents the four aspects of life that the cree people follow.
5. Finally, the middle of the wheel is the fire, which represents the Cree tribe as their life.
?- I wonder why the fire represents the life?
