Even among Pueblo Indians today, “motherness” pumps the brain full of “something other than the kind of sentimental respect for motherhood that is reflected in American's Mother's Day…. It is ritually powerful…. So central to ritual activities is it in Indian cultures that men are honored by the name mother...."

From Gunn Allen, The Sacred Hoop, Boston: Beacon Press, 1992.

Beautiful artwork! You know, I recently saw something where Lakota activist Russell Means was talking about living in a matriarchy and why that was a good thing. Don't you just love men like that?!
