Color Theory

In 1666, Sir Isaac Newton created the first color wheel. 

On a basic color wheel, there are 3 categories of colors: 

  1. primary colors - cyan, magenta, yellow 
  2. secondary colors - purple, green, orange
  3. and tertiary colors that mix primary and secondary colors 

ROYGBIV is an acronym for the sequence of hues commonly described as making up a rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

100% of dogs see fewer hues than humans and cannot distinguish between red, yellow, green and orange objects.

In the Shawnee language there are 5 words to describe colors:

  • skipakya – blue or green 
  • m’skwawi – red 
  • wakanakya – white 
  • hofawa – yellow or orange
  • m’katewa – black
