Different Colors, Directions, People – One Creator

I was taught that the four directions are represented by the four colors of the four directions. These colors also represented the colors of all the people on the earth. If one disrespected a human being of another color they were disrespecting themselves and the Creator who brought order to everything. The circle enclosing the four colors is the circle of Life representing this physical existence. Everything outside the circle was the Creator. He is without beginning and without end.
