Carnival on Women’s Land

Debbie says:

Superbabymama hosts the latest Carnival of Feminists and her primary subject is poverty and class. She managed not only to cover this subject, but also to find some positive things to blog about … though when she gets to the Middle East, the stories turn unsurprisingly (if depressingly) bleak.

After a stop at the sex wars, the carnival ends with a set of “posts too marvelous to be categorized,” which includes our own Lynne Murray‘s “How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Fat.” Go Lynne!

And she ends with this triumphant note:

According to Wampum 44 of our constitution, the Kaianereh’ko:wa/Great Law, the women are the title holders of our land. Title to our land is vested in the people through the women. … Canadian Hydro Developers never consulted us nor asked us, the title holders, for our consent to enter our land and develop your wind mill project on Kanion’ke:haka territory. … The windmills on our land are now attached to the soil. According to law they become part of the land. They cannot be removed. As the owners of the land we are now the owners of the windmills.
