Cree Sacred Sites: Tyrone Tootoosis


This arieal view of a so-called Medicine Wheel is of one of many similar sites on the Great Northern Plains. I had an opportunity to do an on-camera interview with a Cree Elder right on the site of a similar medicine wheel for my U of S Native Studies program “Nehiyawak”. This was a program where I interviewed over 50 First Nation Elders, Journalists, Academics, Veterans, Oskapaywisak, Treaty Knowledge Keepers, Artists, Leaders, etc.. Anyway, the interview with this Elder provided me with an opportunity to ask him if he knew anything of what these rock formations meant. He gave me a fascinating insight on how some of them worked.
