From Sioux sun symbols to a Hopi rock drawing, these 31 Native American mandalas to color—each accompanied by a quote, prayer, or song—capture a range of traditional motifs. Feel the power of the Cheyenne sign of the universe, the Rising Rain Deity of the Hopi, Navaho thunder arrows, a collage of mystical symbols from the Ojibwa, Yokut weaving designs, and a labyrinth from the Papago. Other examples include shields, the four directions, the sun dance, a falcon, and more—all illuminating the Native American respect and regard for Mother Earth and the Great Spirit.
