Streetlevel mural by Lance Cardinal

soulflamecreativeservices.com

Treaty 8, Bigstone Cree Nation artist and designer Lance Cardinal is creating a vibrant mural taking inspiration from Pendleton blankets. The blankets given as gifts today, and were given in exchanges between colonial representatives and Indigenous communities at the beginnings of time and held value because of the warmth they provided. Over time, the blankets were added to the list of goods that Indigenous communities could gift one another. The blanket is always used to celebrate and bring people together to write people in love and to show gratitude to each other. The geometric designs are very common in the Treaty 6 territory and the medicine wheel, of course, is one of the most iconic indigenous symbols of all time.

The Medicine Wheel, sometimes known as the Sacred Hoop or Sacred Circle, has been used by generations of various Native American tribes and First Nations in Canada for health and healing and as a tool for learning and teaching. There are many interpretations of the Medicine Wheel by many people and cultures, and no one is wrong.

The circle, or wheel, is a common symbol in many cultures and represents several elements to the First Nations. The circle acknowledges the connectedness of everything in life, such as the four seasons, the four stages of life and the four winds, and it represents the continuous cycle and relationship of the seen and unseen, the physical and spiritual, birth and death, and the daily sunrise and sunset. The circle is divided into four coloured quadrants. The colours can vary, but the symbolism remains similar amongst the first peoples. The wheel moves in a clockwise direction, with the teachings always beginning at the yellow, or eastern, quadrant. These colours relate to teachings of the directions, seasons, elements, animals, plants, heavenly bodies and the stages of life.
