Hinged Hatchet Ring in Black Rhodium

Regular price $355.00

Significance

Four crossed hatchets are subtly woven into the powerful design of this statement ring. Hatchets symbolize the weapon of choice for Chickasaw women of the 1730s who effectively defended their families and homes from European invaders. This ring was created using the ancient chasing and repoussé technique in order to celebrate the strength and intelligence of our Chickasaw ancestors. The armor-like shape of the ring brings confidence while reminding you to meet every challenge fearlessly and boldly. Today we wield knowledge instead of hatchets, however, we are no less fierce than our grandmothers, and will pass on this gift of strength to our granddaughters.

Collection

The Hatchet Women ~ Indigenous Resistance since 1736

During the French Indian Wars of the 1730s, villages in our southeastern homelands were under attack by French Soldiers looking to take our resources and harm our people. However, they were stopped by Chickasaw women. Armed with hatchets and skilled in combat, these unconquerable women forced the French to retreat.
