#161 Horse 4 Directions


The medicine wheel is an important symbol recognized universally among all tribes. The medicine wheel represents the four races of man, the four sacred directions and the four sacred colors. There are many Native American names for the horse. The Lakota called their horses ‘Sacred Dog’. The horse changed the lives of many tribes, allowing people to travel great distances in just a few hours or days, rather than it taking days or weeks on foot. Horses also assisted in moving entire camps. Warriors proudly painted their war ponies. Horses were considered a valuable commodity, and a man’s wealth was often times equated with how many horses he had acquired. The horse represents power and freedom to many Native Americans.
