Crossed circle with 23 dots around it at the Three Rivers Petroglyph Site, New Mexico. Via The Road. Original Caption reads:
This is a medicine wheel. I read that all tribes have them. They have a lot of meaning within them. Here is just a bit of what I know about them. The four spokes represent the four directions. The four sections represent the four seasons, the four stages of life, four aspects of a person’s being (i.e. physical, spiritual, emotional,…) different clans, and much more. During my time living near the Ojibway and Chippewa Indians, I noted the sections of their medicine wheel to have four colors: white, yellow, red, and black.
Let’s compare this specific petroglyphs with other images:
