MOST RECENT

Today my family buried Sonia Lucas, the legendary leader of our pack, our holy Matriarch, known to most, and to me, as Granma Luke. She has gathered us up over the course of many generations, and she brought us all together, yet again, today.
Born Sophie Kalescky on September 16th, 1919 in New York City; daughter of Barbara and Carl, two fresh-off-the-boat non-English-speaking immigrants from Kiev who worked as tailors in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. She had 5 siblings, 4 daughters, 11 grandkids, and 14-going-on-15 great grandchildren... 30 living direct descendants.
There’s a contemporary theory that humanity’s earliest domestic institution was not the family, but the matrilineal clan. In recent years, evolutionary biologists, geneticists and paleoanthropologists have all been citing evidence that early human kinship was likely to have been matrilineal, that is, sourced from the mother’s side.

And then there’s what I learned about the human heartbeat in yoga studies… This mighty muscle at the center of our being has enough power to pump blood from head-to-toe, all day, everyday, sometimes for as long of a stretch as 98 years and 4 months. Nevertheless, the heart is not strong enough to start itself. This is why when it stops, it usually stops forever. There is but one thing that can ignite a heartbeat into life. Very precisely, it is the jumpstart from the mother to her baby in utero, passed on from woman to child, a cardiac hand-me-down that traces all the way back to whoever the first mother may have been. Because Sonia had four daughters, this means that each and every grandchild has inherited the literal heartbeat of Granma Luke. It is no wonder we are thick as thieves. We share the same heirloom beat of the true Grand Mother. 💕💕💕 #rip #granmaluke #grandmother #matriarch #matrilineal #lucas #clan #cousins

I was inspired to begin this practice after listening to @daughterofthesun_ and @mythicmedicine call out the name of their mothers and grandmothers on the latest episode of Mythic Medicine’s “Medicine Stories” podcast: Naming Your Lineage & Deeply Releasing Fear.
It was so powerful to hear the names of the women in their lines! And as I listened I could also feel my ancestors asking me to speak their names too!
.
.
I’ve been digging into my ancestry over the last few years - including getting my ancestral DNA results, doing a lot of ancestral healing ritual work, and beginning the process of flushing out my family tree with names, dates, and stories. It feels soooo amazing to reconnect. .
.
And especially during this time in my life where I have been tasked with gathering women in sacred community, and showing up as my full wild self, I feel all the more supported and emboldened to have the women in my matrilineal line standing at my back. .
.
I encourage and invite all of you to reconnect with your ancestors (maternal and paternal)!! And if you’re adopted, you can still do ancestral healing work within you blood lineage and adoptive family.
I recommend anyone interested in exploring ancestral ritual work to read Ancestral Medicine: Rituals for Personal and Family Healing by @danielfoor (recommend this before in #tallreads). .
.
Lastly I want to share a couple old timey photos I just found. The first is of my maternal grandma Patricia (still alive) when she was a teenager being all serious out in nature somewhere. 👌🏻
And the second picture is of my great great grandma Elsbeth (from Scotland) on her wedding day with my great great grandfather William (from Germany). I love the roses pinned to their clothes!!
In the background is their daughter, my great grandmother Leora.
Putting faces to names really brings it home. 💕🌀🕸🌚

#Mucubal (also called #Mucubai #Mucabale #Mugubale) people are a subgroup of the #Herero ethnic group settling in #SouthernAngola. They are also #Bantu speaking people. It is historically asserted that the #Mucubals are originally from #Kenya and are related to the #Massais

They are semi #nomadic pastoralists living as cattle raisers and engaged in #agriculture They live in a large area between the slopes of #ChelaMounts in the north, and #RiverCunene to the south, where they are believed to have stopped during the Herero migration, about 300 years ago.
Mucubal have some very strong time-honored customs and traditions which they value so dearly. They are seriously interested in #cattle #worship it and do not care about the rest of the world outside of the bush. As a custom, the Mucubals are not allowed to mention people’s name in public, except their parent’s names and specifically names of children. #Married couples are not allowed to talk to each other in public, as long as she (a wife) hasn’t had children. They can only speak to each other in private.
The family structure and organization is also very specific. The father has the authority and is the head of the family, although the #matrilineal descent is considered more important, as they inherit through the mother's family. For example the son of the #Soba chieftain of the village’s sister is the #heir of the Soba.
Mucubal people believe in a God called #Huku #Klaunga #Ndyambi They also worship their ancestors' spirits called #OyoHandi and #Ovi huku, which are considered inferior to their supreme divinity. 🌱

West Sumatra is the heartland of the Minangkabau, an ethnic group that, to me, is most well known for these things:
1) being the largest matrilineal society in the world (e.g. women own all property, pass on the family name and receive grooms in their households after marriage)
2) building these distinctive ‘horned’ traditional abodes
3) being intellectuals and philosophers
4) being the most well travelled of all the ethnic groups of the Malay Isles
5) making the best Indonesian food - not for nothing, you can find Nasi Padang restaurants in every corner of Indonesia.

The Mosuo ethnic minority, who live in Yunnan and Sichuan provinces in China, revere women. Here, they prepare to perform a traditional dance. Our article takes a look at this so-called “Kingdom of Women,” a matrilineal society with unconventional marriage practices in which female births are revered and grandmothers are the most important family member.

The Emberá tribe come from the Darien region in  Panama: population 33,000 and the Choco region of #colombia : population 55,000.  Nobody knows if the #emberá have always been in these regions or migrated from the Pacific or Brazil?
The government of Panamá recognizes the 7 unique #indigenous tribes who live there and they each have been given what is called a Comarca. A Comarca is roughly equivalent to a #reservation in the U.S but several notable differences.  The tribes in #panamá were never forced off of their home territories, the comarca borders are drawn around their original homelands. The Indigenous tribes were ignored and not even counted in the census of Panama and not recognized as citizens nor given the right and access to education until 1975!  There is one benefit that resulted from the Emberá being ignored for so long, and that is that their language, culture, traditions, villages and lifestyle are still intact.
Life in the Darien today, is not easy.  Even though there are plenty of natural resources for them, much of the area outside of their #comarcas is a National Park, which means they are no longer allowed to hunt or grow subsistence crops as they always have.  Traditionally, the Embera people would live in an extended family group along one of the many rivers.  To access a school for their children, many families now have to relocate closer to a more populated area. This means they left the #rainforest  to make money to shop at stores to provide food with little opportunity to hunt or farm the way their ancestors have.
The people of the village of Emberá Purú migrated from the Darien about 50 years ago, seeking a better quality of life for themselves and their children. They are #matrilineal and #polygamous. They settled in what is now the #chagresnationalpark #losembera have resorted to engage in tourism to sustain themselves. Tourism provides income that goes into purchasing basic staple food items, medicine, school supplies, gas and outboard motors.

Start them young, build them strong. Sally K. Ride, an American physicist and the first American woman in space (1983, holla to my birth year and Frank Frazetta on @heavymetal magazine) stands in the President’s Corner of @the_explorers_club. Women like her are the reason why I will continue to learn, push, fight and explore in all the ways that I can (and in all the ways that I have yet to discover). Because there are generations to follow who will question their abilities, their strengths, their seat at the table...and the placard below the image that they see in their mind will read, “Hell yes. This space is for you.”

Dinner @the_explorers_club listening to the wildness of mountaineer, @janreynoldsphotos whilst dreaming about roaming with the Tuareg, salt trades, and what it means to be a conscious human in a society where the most deplorable of actions are seemingly inconsequential.
