When Native Americans pray to the four directions, it is a prayer to the spirits of the world, to life, and the Great Spirit that encompasses everything that is. The Medicine Wheel is a symbol that incorporates the four directions with spokes pointing to each. The four quarters are colored red, yellow, black, and white representing all races, seasons, and stages of life. The circle is the earth, moon and planets. It is the circle of life and all creation.
