Native Americans call their land "Turtle Island" . It is the center of their cosmos. Surrounding it is the DNA of all creatures in the universe, the four directions, and the four elements: Air, Fire, Water and Earth.
ELEMENT EARTH. Mother Earth giving birth, Pacha Mama, Gaia. She is connected to nature, the trees, her crystal heart, elemental creatures.
ELEMENT FIRE. Children dancing facing fire on Summer Solstice night, San Juan night.
ELEMENT AIR. The Greek gods of the four winds. The Wind Rose or Compass guiding sailors through their paths.
ELEMENT WATER. Sea creatures, symbols, water as source of life.
