Considering Matrilineality: an alternative to patriarchy

In New York State, we are privileged to live with the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Nation as neighbors. They, and others like the Lenape, have been matrilineal for untold time; a way of life where men and women share power equally, sometimes in different spheres.

Now that the origin of the three sky god religions that brought the subjugation of women to our world (Judaism, Islam, Christianity), has been described and understood, it is time to reinstate an equal reverence for both male and female principles. The exploitation of Mother Earth is consistent with the exploitation of women and people of color. Enough is enough!
