Haskell offering tours of large medicine wheel created by Stan Herd

September 9, 2011


Haskell Indian Nations University students are offering free tours of a large medicine wheel created by Lawrence landscape artist Stan Herd in 1992.

American Indian tribes use medicine wheels as a threshold for spiritual energy, said Millicent Pepion, a Haskell student. The wheel is a circle that marks the four cardinal directions and also incorporates the directions of up, down and within. The school uses the medicine wheel south of its campus as a place to prayer, study and exercise.

Pepion said students will meet anyone who is interested in a tour of the medicine wheel each Saturday at 9 a.m. in two different locations — at the eco-walk near 31st Street and Barker Avenue, and on the Haskell campus at Barker and South Perimeter Road.

I wish they would offer times during the week, as I cannot make weekends due to work. I would be interested in it.

59YearResident, your comments are ridiculous.

Why aren't there pictures with this story? This could be a real tourist attraction, as well as a place for prayers and for the future. What's wrong with you, Journal-World, that you don't have pictures and more substance to make a major story? This is the kind of thing Google would put on their news program, and it might even get New York Times coverage.

You have really missed a story with this.
