  • Clan MACGILLIVRAY
    In a Gaelic lament for the slain at Culloden the MacGillivrays are spoken of as:
    “The warlike race,
    The gentle, vigorous, flourishing,
    Active, of great fame, beloved,
    The race that will not wither, and has descended
    Long from every side,
    Excellent MacGillivrays of the Doune”.

  • Ukranian Wild Women

    In the Ukraine, there is a group of women who call themselves the Asgarda living as an Amazon tribe.

    Asgarda

    The ferocious-looking tribe is “…comprised of 150 women of varying ages, primarily students, led by 30 year-old Katerina Tarnouska. Reviving the tribal traditions of the Scythian Amazons of ancient Greek mythology, the Asgarda train in martial arts, taught by former Soviet karate master, Volodymyr Stepanovytch, and learn life skills and sciences in order to become ideal women.”

    Apparently that means learning how to use scythes and other bladed weapons, shaving each others heads, and hanging out by rock formations.

    Just so you know.
