Papers-etc Betsy Thunder, HoChunk medicine woman, Wisconsin, 1913. From a wonderful book Women's Wisconsin, which talks about female farmers, chiefs, medicine women, etc. In the 1700s the primary chief was a woman, Hopoekaw, who guided the HoChunk through the French colonization of Wisconsin and the later American intrusion. American souces describe her as a "queen" or as a "distinguished" woman, "very ancient," and "invested with the supreme authority." Suppressed Histories Archives

"Love is something you and I must have. We must have it because our spirit feeds upon it. We must have it because without it we become weak and faint. Without love our self-esteem weakens, our courage fails, we can no longer look out confidently at the world.

The medicine wheel is a symbol for the wheel of life which is forever evolving and bringing new lessons and truths to the walking of the path. The Earthwalk is based on the understanding that each one of us must stand on every spoke, on the great wheel of life many times, and that every direction is to be honored. Until you have walked in others' moccasins, or stood on their spokes of the wheel, you will never truly know their hearts. ❤❦♪♫
