Bringing the personal connections and meaningful under- standing for which they are renown, the women capture the broad cultural diversity of the sacred rituals of birth, death, courtship, leadership, healing and more.  The landmark exhibition transports us to a world of connections between individual and community, body and soul, land and people.
