Medicine wheels, or sacred hoops, are either a symbol of indigenous North American culture and religion, or stone monuments related to this symbol.

The monuments were constructed by laying stones in a particular pattern on the ground oriented to the four directions. Most medicine wheels follow the basic pattern of having a center of stone(s), and surrounding that is an outer ring of stones with "spokes", or lines of rocks radiating from the center with the spokes facing East, South, West and North following the cardinal directions. Some ancient types of sacred architecture were built by laying stones on the surface of the ground in particular patterns common to aboriginal people.

    I cannot find the ancestral link, though I know there is one. My father would call us children "little micmacs" but I do not know the culture of the Mi'kmaq people. It was stolen. In previous generations to admit you had Indian blood was to subject yourself to ridicule and to a life of severe poverty - Mi'kmaq men were seldom hired so families hid their native roots and did their best to abolish links to their past. I am "white". And I am lost.
