Seven Grandfather Teachings – Winter
The North section of the Medicine Wheel represents the Winter months. We must give honor to Sweet Grass, Fire, and Elders. The North has the Polar Bear with its helper, the Snow Owl.
Truth is having the knowledge of our cultural teachings. It gives us the ability to act without regret. We must understand, speak, and feel the truth, while also honoring its power. Truth should not lead us to deceptions. We know who we are in our heart. By knowing that, we also know the truth. Our emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual gifts will guide each one of us in our journey.
