A Female Fire-keeper

A Female Fire-keeper



Fire keeper can it be a woman or can a woman help with fire
This would all depend on your location Barbara.
For instance Native American Country or Indian Country?
And
Are you talking matriarchal society of patriarchal society?
Matriarchal Society, yes always.
Patriarchal Society, I have my doubts.
Matriarch
If it is your own circle, “Go For It!”
Smudging the correct way.

    1. I am glad that you brought up your Sunksqua because it rattled my poor old brain about something that might interest you.
      There is a difference between Indian Country, Native American Country and most if not all tribes in and from Canada.
      Tribes like yours and mine (in and around New England), are of a Matriarchal and the leaders are Sunksqua/Sachem/Shechaim leadership with Clan Mothers running the tribe.
      Indian country has Chief.
      Canadian and tribes from Canada have Sagamore’s and the male runs the tribe.
      I did meet the last decedent of the Massachusetts Wampanoag many years ago.
