Hand embellished by the artist, this gallery wrapped canvas print will bring you many years of enjoyment.
The Story Behind It
Many Native American tribes, including the Choctaws, were matriarchal societies. In Choctaw culture, women were likened to Mother Earth. Givers of Life and sustenance, they were revered in the tribe.
Family lines followed the female side, rather than the male. When a wife died, her property did not revert to her husband, but went instead to her children and biological family.
Choctaw women have been known to pick up the weapons of a fallen husband in battle and continue the fight. In this painting, the women are waiting for warriors to return. The two on the right have husbands they await. The one on the left is an unmarried girl, awaiting her father’s return.
