The Medicine Wheel is a circular symbol representing the wholeness of traditional Indigenous life. It is a perfectly balanced shape without a top or bottom, length, or width. It represents constant movement and change. It also represents and symbolizes unity, peace, harmony, and courage. It is a testimony of the human being’s ability to survive and to maintain balance. The goal is to strike a harmonious balance in life. The circular form of the Medicine Wheel shows the relationship of all things in a unity, a perfect form, and suggests the cyclical nature of all relationships and interactions. Everything in the universe is part of a single whole.
