Seven Arrows is in many ways a monumental book. In addition to an understandable explanation of the workings of Medicine Wheels, it contains beautiful old Native American narratives. These are increased with a lot of speed, excitement, humour and insight.
Seven Arrows is the first book to reveal the deep knowledge of the Medicine Wheel; The spiritual discipline and earth science that reflects the design and balance of a living universe.
Since the first edition in 1973, this book has been translated and reprinted many times. Without much exaggeration, we can call Seven Arrows a classic in its genre. A large number of impressive historical photographs, drawings and beautifully decorated shields perfectly complement the text.
Hyemeyohsts (pronounced Hajemejoost) Storm grew up in the reserves of the Cheyenne and Crow in Montana. His father was a Shieldmaker and Teacher, and he gave Hyemeyohst the first lessons in making, painting and denoting many kinds of Personal Shields.
