Help Create a Medicine Wheel Garden at First Peoples Buffalo Jump
By Moosetrack Megan

Posted: May 2, 2019

First Peoples Buffalo Jump State Park is looking for volunteers to help create a Medicine Wheel garden on Saturday, May 4 from 10am to 12pm. Volunteers will help with rock placement, plant native plants and decorate of the garden.

The Medicine Wheel is represented by a circle separated into four quadrants and has been used by generations of various Native American tribes for health and healing. It embodies the four directions, as well as Father Sky, Mother Earth, and Spirit Tree; all of which symbolize dimensions of health and the cycles of life.

Some tools will be provided by the park, but participants may bring their own gloves and tools, as well. For more information, call the park visitor center at (406) 866-2217.
