Support Max Dashú Film Project 'Woman Shaman | The Ancients'

By Anne of Carversville contributor Alex B. Note that Female Icons|Ancestral Mothers poster is $20 plus shipping and can be purchased here.

As I was having breakfast this morning I checked my Facebook wall and found a wonderful video-clip made by Max Dashú, who also writes the blog Veleda.

Woman Shaman | The Ancients

Max’s project is fascinating. She founded the Suppressed Histories Archives in 1970 and is reclaiming women’s past history as shamans and healers, something that has always been associated with men. This devoted communicator of women’s real history has collected evidence from the art imagery of different cultures to support the proposition that it was women who were the original healers and this occurred cross-culturally.

Indeed Max has amassed a wealth of archaeological evidence and is currently engaged in making a film about her research.

The Truth Will Set Us Free

I welcome Max Dashú’s project. Women need to be reminded that patriarchal values can be opposed. There is an alternative to the war-mongering culture we seem to be living in and that alternative, which is for both men and women to share, is rooted in revalorising the immense and active contribution of women to cultural history, an input that has systematically been undermined and suppressed.

Max Dashú is raising funds for her film project. I am myself donating and I would urge you to consider doing the same, her target is $7,000. You need not give a huge amount. Every little bit helps. Checking again before posting this article, Max has made good progress in the last few days.

Why do it? I will quote Max:

We’ve been taught that women spiritual leaders didn’t exist, or were rare exceptions, or insignificant. We’ve also been told that the shamanic cultures were superstitious, backward, ignorant. Woman Shaman: the Ancients shows the reality, making visible the long and rich cultural record of medicine women, diviners and oracles, trance-dancers, shapeshifters, and women who journey through the worlds. To experience the beauty and power of these spiritual legacies is medicine for the spirit, especially for all the women who have been pushed down, marginalized and silenced in the name of religion. And it’s an offering for everyone who knows the immeasurable value of aboriginal spiritual ways. They are our birthright, however far back we have to go to reach it…Contributing to Woman Shaman is a way for you to vote for media you would like to see.

Anne will announce shortly a special Anne of Carversville initiative to support Max in raising the funds she needs to continue and expand this critically important work for humanity and women’s history. The support for Max on our Facebook pages has been magnificent and a growing group of women and many men want to give Max Dashú the funding support she deserved a long time ago.

Warmly, Alex B
