Completing the Circle
Reconnecting Native American foster children to their tribe, their culture and their heritage.
Indigenous cultural awareness for foster families
The circle holds many meanings in cultures around the world, but is especially sacred in the Native American or Indigenous cultures. It represents the sun, moon, and the earth. It marks the edge of the world and the four directions along with the winds that travel there. Most importantly it is a symbol for the circle or wheel of life which is forever evolving and teaching us new lessons as we travel each path. To travel a path together, sharing our cultures, is one step closer to Completing the Circle and healing the mind, body and spirit for our future, our children.
