The wraps around their heads denotes what tribe they are with. Each tribe has a disctintive weave pattern and head gear. All the garmets they have are hand made and are woven on hand looms. We saw a lot of weavers everywhere we went.

No person can possibly be celebrating women without considering and loving their strength! Your photograph obviously captures that essence with penetrating clarity. It is not strength for strength's sake, nor for bravado, nor for selfish aims. It is survival strength for the children, for the family, for the village, for the whole essence of community. Your title is exactly correct and accurate too. Could one possibly question the Regal Nature and standing of these women? And ladies, no doubt. They cherish their role and take it very seriously because it is serious. It provokes thoughts about their life experiences and priorities. Whatever they think, I would be inclined to support their judgment. Thank you for helping me celebrate that.
