Pretty Shield (1856–1944) was a medicine woman of the Crow Nation. Her autobiography was written with the help of Frank B. Linderman, who interviewed her using an interpreter and sign language. This book was perhaps the first record of the women’s side of Native American life. The Pretty Shield Foundation is named in her honor.
The Medicine Wheel is a tool that can be used to check in with yourself and receive insights to problems. The wheel represents the circle of life. The circle represents the circle of the earth and the metaphysical circle of all creation. It is important to keep all our aspects in balance- mind, body, emotions and spirit. Work with the medicine wheel to reflect on your strengths and weaknesses
