native american color wheel question

symbols vary by tribe, but I have a triple moon tattoo with yellow on top (north) orange on the left (west?) black on bottom (south) and yellow on right (east?) I always get east and west confused lol but anyone know what tribe uses these colors in that "order" I'm just curious. I did some research on what the colors and directions represented and thats how it turned out.
