Hi! I'm organizing a camp for Indigenous kids in care, and we're getting t-shirts made. Would you be willing to allow us to use your design with credit? It's just a small camp and we're a non-profit, but I love your design and it would be perfect.

Absolutely.  You are free to use it.  There is another digital version of this that is perfect for t-shirts.  It may need some cleaning up on the white background a little.

Here something about Native American medicine wheels:

"The Native American Medicine Wheel was used for various spiritual and ritual purposes, especially for healing almost any illness. Since it was believed that illness sprang from spiritual in balance, the focus of the healing was on treating the source of the problem, not the symptoms. As the medicine wheel focuses on balance of all things, it was thought this balance would help the spiritual in balance in the person who was sick.
Most medicine wheels have a basic pattern - a center of stone (cairn) then having an outer ring of stone with "spokes" of stone radiating out from the center.

Being a wheel, it is round depicting the circle of life, the shape of the sun and the moon, etc. The medicine wheel consists of the four cardinal directions and four sacred colors representing certain properties:..."

I like how you added the light in the middle of the circles! Is this for the Native American class???

The basic design is going to be a logo for the Native American Club, I hope.

This is the logo for the NAC. The art contest is for the logo for the Intertribal Ed Fair. That one I won't enter myself. I am waiting though, for student submissions.

We have our meetings on Wednesdays at lunch time in room S-3. I will present the NAC logo design to the students then and get their input. If they like it, we will start using it.

For the Ed Fair Logo Contest, the deadline is this Friday. I've had a lot of students promise to submit something, but absolutely no takers so far. I haven't a single submisssion in over three months. It's been in the bulletin, on flyers, on the radio, in newsletters (Tite VII, NAC and tribal). I've even approached Native American students who are in art class. Nothing. Nada. :hmm:

We will just have to go with our own logo we used last year I guess.

I like this one better than the paint one, it has more flavor to it. :D
If you have a grey pencil though I think the white part could use some lovinz. XD Unless it's blank space O:

It is supposed to be white, but maybe a very light grey would give it some substance. :-)

I will try that thanks! All three of these need just a little more work. It supposed to be a design that will end up on t-shirts, flyers and banners for a high school Native American club. I tried to get one of my students to submit a design, but they would rather have me do one. Well, okay, so I drew one up. Next we will get together and decided on any changes or additions. I hope I represented the culture okay, seeing as I am not Native American myself. My students will let me know if anything is off kilter.

My job is a special form of teacher under Title VII of the 2001 Education Act (United States Congress). I am more of a mentor and tutor than a dedicated classroom teacher. So, it's my job to come up with activities that boost student interest in school and academic performance. :D That translates to fun stuff sometimes!
