Beaded Medicine Wheel
A stone circle built by North American Indians, believed to have religious, astronomical, territorial, or calendrical significance
Medicine wheels, or sacred hoops, were constructed by laying stones in a particular pattern on the ground. 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.
A large circular pattern made on the ground through the placement of stones. The patterns could include other rings, spokes and cairns. The Blackfoot indians used these kinds of structures as part of a death lodge to inter famous and powerful warriors.
Since 50 states werenit enough, yuppie New Agers stole this ritual so they could use it to fix flat tires on their mountain bikes and Jeeps.

Gerald Jacobs medicine wheel basket
Gerald Neptune Jacobs, Passamaquoddy, creates fine fancy baskets that incorporate various elements of the natural world, such as starfish and sea urchins. This basket is embellished with an antler handle, glass beads and porcupine quills. The colors in the basket represent the medicine wheel, which according to Jacobs "is a physical manifestation of spiritual energy."
