GlamTribale Tastes The Tree Of Knowledge

Greetings, goddess! Feanne here, inviting you to partake of the Tree Of Knowledge. You’re tuned in to the Engage newsletter from AnneOfCarversville and GlamTribale.

Sign up for Engage and we’ll email you a weekly dispatch filled with visuals and writings of the sensual, creative, and feminine. You’ll also receive exclusive GlamTribale goddess jewelry discounts and special news.

GlamTribale is now at WWW.GLAMTRIBALE.ORG— please update your bookmarks. Anne is working hard to fix the technical issues last week with the GlamTribale website, when the glamtribale.com domain expired with no warning. Anne’s business partner did not keep organized records of the domain registration, and so we weren’t able to anticipate the domain troubles. Anne writes: “This is a life lesson for every woman: have complete lists of everything that matters. If you must tie down your spouse or partner to get all the necessary information— do it! And put the info in a safe place, ideally more than one copy.”

New Gaia goddess themed GlamTribale jewelry pieces will be at the Italian Festival this weekend May 17 and 18 at South 9th Street Italian Market Festival Philadelphia, and also at PHAIR Open Air/Artisan Market on May 22 to 24 at The Oval at Philadelphia Art Museum.

Continuing from our Garden Of Eve theme last week, today we partake of the Tree Of Knowledge.

Like the mythical Eve who, in the patriarchal narrative, was unfairly punished for eating the fruit of the Tree Of Knowledge, girls and women today are persecuted for daring to seek education. Curiosity and learning beget questions, challenging and upsetting oppressive ruling systems that can only remain in power by maintaining mass ignorance and apathy. Education is thus branded as a heretical and subversive danger, one that must be nipped in the bud. The gatekeepers of the status quo well know: Wherever education is allowed to take root and grow, it runs the risk of blossoming into a full-fledged societal paradigm shift.

The recent horrific kidnapping of over 250 Nigerian schoolgirls by the religious terrorist group Boko Haram is only the latest in a long history of extremist attacks against women. Nicholas Kristof explains why in What’s So Scary About Smart Girls?:

“When terrorists in Nigeria organized a secret attack last month, they didn’t target an army barracks, a police department or a drone base. No, Boko Haram militants attacked what is even scarier to a fanatic: a girls’ school. That’s what extremists do. They target educated girls, their worst nightmare. That’s why the Pakistani Taliban shot Malala Yousafzai in the head at age 15. That’s why the Afghan Taliban throws acid on the faces of girls who dare to seek an education. Why are fanatics so terrified of girls’ education? Because there’s no force more powerful to transform a society. The greatest threat to extremism isn’t drones firing missiles, but girls reading books. In that sense, Boko Haram was behaving perfectly rationally — albeit barbarically — when it kidnapped some of the brightest, most ambitious girls in the region and announced plans to sell them as slaves. If you want to mire a nation in backwardness, manacle your daughters.”
- Nicholas Kristof

GlamTribale’s commitment to women and girls worldwide reached back to 2007. We wholeheartedly agree that educating women is the key to unlocking peace and prosperity for communities all over the world. As Kristof explains, investing in women results in exponential societal rewards:

“Educated women have fewer children and many want careers outside the home. For the likes of Boko Haram, once a woman is educated, she is lost, because she cannot be made uneducated and thus totally controlled. Theocracies repress women. The aim of every theocracy or theocracy-in-waiting, such those under the influence of the Taliban and al Qaeda, is to exert outright control over women. Even if women are allowed some education in a few theocracies, they are denied the opportunity to work outside the home. The antidote for Boko Haram’s poison is more education for girls. While America’s hard power can contain religious terrorism in the short term, to win the battle in the long term, America needs to use its soft power and invest heavily in girls’ education and women’s empowerment worldwide. Studies have shown that once women took a few steps away from poverty, their first investment was in their children’s education, followed by healthcare. Women turned out to be far more astute investors than men.”
- Nicholas Kristof

In Fight religious terrorists like Nigeria’s Boko Haram by educating girls, Fakhruddin Ahmed further discusses the rationale and mechanism by which extremists oppress women, and how educating women helps dismantle that dysfunctional system:

Anne has written about Eve, Lilith, and the Garden Of Eden— that creation narrative so deeply rooted in age-old oppressive patriarchal systems. Eve and her wild companion, the snake, have been maligned throughout history, serving as the scapegoats for any and all misfortunes. Because of their inherent mystery and allurement, they are feared as the “other”, the frightful “unknown”, the dangerous “wild”, the obscure “dark”. They are wrongly branded as evil, only because they are different and unfamiliar. They symbolize all women, who continue today to be subject to various forms and degrees of persecution all over the world. We seek to reclaim this creation narrative and restore Eve— and every single woman— to her rightful place of dignity as a free and equal human being.

We’re looking forward to breathing cleaner air soon, as a few days ago the US Supreme Court upheld the Environmental Protection Agency’s move to limit pollution from about 1,000 coal plants from 28 Midwestern and Appalachian states. Perfect timing for GlamTribale’s new coasters celebrating butterflies! Our lovely winged friends are very sensitive to air pollution, and their presence indicates relatively clean air in the surrounding environment. Our butterfly coasters are alighting at The Woodlands in Philadelphia this Saturday, before flying to the Hoboken Spring Art & Music Festival Sunday.

While GlamTribale unveils the new butterfly-inspired collection, monarch butterflies are arriving in the US after a long migration from Mexico. The first week of May marks the beginning of a surge of monarch butterfly sightings in states such as Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Tennessee, Kentucky, North Carolina, and even Virginia. You can help these beautiful creatures by planting native milkweed and nectar-providing flowers, avoiding pesticides, and reporting your observations to aid scientists.

The fascinating PBS Earth Day feature on woolly mammoths coincides with the birth of a new GlamTribale woolly mammoth collection. While PBS discussed the questions raised by the possibility of using cloning technology to bring these beautiful behemoths back, GlamTribale is using woolly mammoth bones to breathe life into the ancient megaherbivore’s legacy— as well to help save elephant’s lives today.


PBS News Hour: Should science revive the woolly mammoth?

Woolly mammoth ivory is a sustainable alternative to elephant ivory, the use of which— along with habitat degradation and other human-caused environmental damage— is pushing our elephant friends towards the same fate as their extinct relatives. GlamTribale’s woolly mammoth and elephant collections are part of our continuing efforts to support conservation. In 2015, GlamTribale will create its own collection of woolly mammoth ivory jewelry for prestige locations.

Anne Enke and Alex Kachenko are very excited to unveil the new Glamtribale woolly mammoth collection, in which they use a unique kiln-firing technique to artistically incorporate woolly mammoth ivory in pottery and jewelry.

GlamTribale May 22-24 At Philadelphia Art Museum With PHAIR

Greetings from Anne.

Many of you have expressed concerns about my state of mind and general health. If you visit us this week May 22-24 in front of Philadelphia’s Museum of Art, you will find me alive, vivacious and thinner by another eight pounds.

My determination to return to my 2003/4 weight is fierce and I have lost over 40 pounds since July 2011 with 13 to go. Meanwhile, the injury that caused this miserable weight gain heals better every week, and I’m back on the treadmill at 3.7 mph, headed back to 4.7.

In truth, digging out from the death of my business partner Robert Rothschild has been enormously challenging. For all his wonderful traits, Robert’s ability to stay organized was always a challenge. Writing down details, key account info and passwords was even more challenging for him to execute.

Reality brought me to my knees about two weeks ago, when I went to GlamTribale.com and found it to be a GoDaddy parking lot url. Robert didn’t set the account to auto-renew and he attached an email addy to the url that I haven’t used in seven years. I was astonished over this new reality and frankly, still haven’t recovered from the moment when I felt the sky was falling.

Until I can buy it back at a reasonable price, you will find us at GlamTribale.org. I also bought GlamTribale.net — astonished also that Robert didn’t buy the trio as rule #1 of domain ownership.

With multiple broken links to reconfigure, I will be a busy woman this week. But DO come and see our great new products at PHAIR’s Artisan Market May 22-24 in front of the Philadelphia Art Museum.

Sending love to all. ~ Anne

What a luminous week we’ve had for human rights! In support of our advocacies for women’s rights, Anne opened the largest GlamTribale shop (so far) at Teaberry on April 7, following a terrific weekend show at Ocean City. In the US, it’s the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act in the US. On April 8, in the Philippines, we finally received news— after waiting for over 15 years— of the activation of our Reproductive Health Law.

Half a century after the Civil Rights Act, we continue to grapple with discrimination issues today. The evolution of communication and travel technologies provides us with more opportunities to learn about people who are different from us, but also provides new environments and contexts for clashing. It’s up to us to use our technology and creativity wisely, to enrich our relationships and evolve holistically. We envision a future in which discrimination is obsolete:
