A Spirit from our Ancestors: a tribute.

Kaitha Het Heru.

Kaitha Het Heru, spiritual woman, craftswoman, daughter of Yemaya, I surmise by her work. If I am wrong I hope she corrects me. - Dawn Wolf, Keeper of Stories Nov. 6, 2016  

When first I came across her Facebook page I was struck by what was in her face, her eyes so compelling a light came unto me with these words:  "Deepened knowledge as wisdom is different from the accumulation of information. Beauty as a force within Nature and Beauty as a living force changing and evolving is a knowledge of self, of divinity that directs Life from formlessness to form. Women do this extremely well if they know how...." - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories Nov. 5, 2016
