Four Direction

Four is a sacred number for Southwest Native American tribes. While the four direction symbol literally represents North, East, South, and West, it embodies much more. There are four sacred mountains: Blanca Peak in Colorado, Mount Taylor in New Mexico, The San Francisco Peaks in Flagstaff, Arizona, and Hesperus Mountain in Colorado. There are four sacred colors of corn: White, Blue, Yellow, and Black; four seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter; four life stages: Infancy (Birth), Youth, Adulthood, and Old Age (Death); four elements of nature: Fire (Sun), Air, Water, and Earth; and four sacred plants: Tobacco, Squash, Beans, and Corn.
