Totem Lessons

It is traditional to use a Jasper stone as the center

stone for the Sacred Alter, but any stone is appropriate

because it represents the Creator of all things. Thus,

any item can represent the Creator. You may place an

Eagle feather there, or any concept or idea. When I

flew to Washington D.C. to discuss the “Cowlitz River

Basin Comprehensive Plan” this plan became the

Sacred Alter. The remainder of the Medicine Wheel

then served as my guide in the ensuing deliberations.

The components of the Medicine Wheel are made up

of mineral totems, animal totems, and plant totems.

 The mineral totems of the Four Pathways represent

the colors of the Four Directions: Yellow or Amber,

White, Black, and Red.
