    The Beloved Woman

    Post by Admin on Wed Apr 24, 2013 4:33 am

    The Beloved Women were chosen by each clan to attend the Council of Women yearly. It was the highest honor they could receive. They not only headed the Council of Women they held a voting seat in the Council of Chiefs. They were given the responsibility of prisoners & decided their fate. They were a sage, guide, & an ambassador, or peace negotiator.

    The last famous beloved woman was my distant relative Nancy Ward: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nancy_Ward
