The Center Pole

As each sun dancer approaches the lodge, ready to begin the ordeal, he should be aware of the sacred character of the lodge. It represents the earth and all creation, as well as the circle of seasons that travel through time. The Center Pole is the staff of life and on it are the medicines and the representatives of The Maker of All Things. It is through the Center Pole that we meet God, so we must go to the center of the circle and understand the responsibility of being placed at the center of creation.
