In "Building Bridges," a Tapestry of Faith program
Youth explore the role of goddesses in indigenous religions.
Invite participants to brainstorm the names of goddesses. Have a volunteer list the names on newsprint.
When the group runs out of goddesss names, contribute these (or, add your favorite goddesses):
Acknowledge that the list is incomplete. Discuss, using these questions:
Tell participants that some of the goddesses of indigenous faiths are still worshipped. If you have Internet access and a computer, watch this video on YouTube: Oshun Festival in New York.
Suggest to youth that if they are interested in goddesses, they can find a great deal of information on the Internet and in books.
