Amazigh Arts in Morocco

In southeastern Morocco, around the oasis of Tafilalet, the Ait Khabbash people weave brightly colored carpets, embroider indigo head coverings, paint their faces with saffron, and wear ornate jewelry. Their extraordinarily detailed arts are rich in cultural symbolism; they are always breathtakingly beautiful—and they are typically made by women. Like other Amazigh (Berber) groups (but in contrast to the Arab societies of North Africa), the Ait Khabbash have entrusted their artistic responsibilities to women. Cynthia Becker spent years in Morocco living among these women and, through family connections and female fellowship, achieved unprecedented access to the artistic rituals of the Ait ...

Chipeta was the wife, confidant, and advisor to Chief Ouray of the Tabeguache band of Ute Indians in the mountain regions of Colorado. After Ouray's death in 1880, Chipeta continued as a leader of her people through times of challenge and hardship until her death in 1924. Chipeta was respected as a wise woman by both Utes and non-Indian people. Cynthia Becker is co-author with David Smith of "Chipeta: Queen of the Utes," and she brings the exhaustive research of that work to this "Now You Know Bio" of an inspirational Native American woman. Finalist for 2009 WILLA Award from Women Writing the West. “Chipeta…never for a moment wavered in her loyalty to what she thought the right and from the first used all her influence for peace…She saw that war meant the murder of hundreds of whites and the extermination of her own people…” – Margaret T. Adams, wife of Charles Adams, Los Pinos Indian Agent "Cynthia Becker's middle grade biography Chipeta: Ute Peacemaker is a must read for all affectionados of local Pikes Peak region lore." — Janice Black – Pikes Peak Writer Magazine

TAZZ’UNT

Tazz’unt presents a group of Berbers (Imazighen), the Ait Arbaa, who live in the Tessawt Valley of the High Atlas of Morocco, eking out a meager existence from the eroded soil of their rugged environment, by harvesting turnips, millet and maize, and one cash crop of walnuts. They depend also on a simple form of summer pasture. Tazz’unt means “limit:” and it refers to an annual ritual which gathers around the shrine of a local Saint, Sidi Asdal, several villages of the Valley for its celebration. A ceremony, a feast, songs and dances accompany the rite. The book is based on a French ethnographic description recorded by a member of that group, Hassan Jouad, and a Frenchman, Bernard Lor...
