Bighorn Medicine Wheel was probably used by prehistoric Native Americans as an ancient astronomical observatory and calendar. Eddy suggests that when the wheel was built by Plains tribes between 300 and 800 years ago, it served to predict the positions of the Sun and other bright stars in the sky around the summer solstice.
