Knowledge of the bow runs deep in our blood, our cells, our ancestral memory. We owe our lives to ancestors who were skilled in archery. Many modern archaeologists believe women invented the bow as a tool for hunting small game to provide food for themselves and their children. And of course, to protect their homes and families, if need be.
The Lady of the Hunt roams the mountains of China and the mountains of the Maya. The northern European folk call Her Skadi, the Romans call Her Diana, the Greeks call Her Artemis.
Archer goddesses figure prominently in indigenous religions and folklore of cultures all over the world. Women who followed Her are known as Amazons - warriors, mothers, healers, midwives, seers, and guardians of women. Her daughters are still here.
According to the writings of the Greek historian, Herodotus, the ancient Amazons worshipped Artemis and built many temples to Her. Of course, over the centuries, Her temples have been destroyed and the names of ancient women who kept Her ways have been lost. Yet, She lives today in the heart of any woman who seeks to live fully in her own power.
