Man Transferring into Healer
This image depicts my clan symbol, Makwa/bear, who has three roles for the clan. Makwa is a protector, teacher, and healer. In this image, a man is inside Makwa learning how to be a healer. When man’s training is complete, he will emerge as a healer for the tribe.
The four directions, four seasons, four races, and the four ages of life, are represented by the four circles and black spirit lines connect all together.
