This second part of the original presentation dedicated to the Holy Maiden, who appeared before Bahá’u’lláh as detailed in Terry Culhane’s Bahá’í publication, I Beheld a Maiden, will continue to focus on the Sacred Feminine or Feminine Divine at the heart of the Bahá’í Faith. 

This multimedia presentation augmented with visual art images that previously focused on the Feminine Divine of Native America will expand globally to including the Ocean Mother, River Goddess and Grandmother Moon with symbolism of the Divine Feminine throughout the world.

It has a global agenda from an Indigenous perspective and reflects the interconnection of myself as woman, mother, Indigenous world citizen, Native North American, spiritual being and warrior. My work has been influenced by the ceremonies of the Onondaga Longhouse, the Hopi Kiva on Second Mesa, the Full Moon and Sweat Lodge ceremonies of the Ojibwe, the Sundance of the Lakota, a pilgrimage to Medicine Wheel, Wyoming, Nanih Waiya Mound of the Choctaw, the Mayan Pyramid in Chichen Itza and Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii, home of goddess Pele.”
