My name is Kathryn QannaYahu (the organic dark chocolate addicted mamasita). My father always called me a shit stirrer. I prefer the label - Revolutionary. No longer am I walking on eggshells, apologizing for the fact that my research pisses some people off. With that in mind, I have decided to reach out to a broader audience, using the shotgun effect - and hopefully rattle a hell of a lot more cages in the process. I am a researcher of archaeology, ancient linguistics and writing systems, paleo and comparative belief systems, and ancient history. In a sense I am an ancient tracker, I follow the trails of the ancient ones. My goal is to heal history and restore an egalitarian culture.
I am an artist (primarily textiles, but also gourds, metal and wood) and website designer. By nature I am a very intense researcher of ancient linguistics and writings systems, comparative and paleo mythology/belief systems, archaeoastronomy, archaeology, and ancient history.
This compulsion led to the creation of the Lebtahor.com website and first book, Worthless Deities in the Hebrew Text. That research led to the creation of the Historical Baggage site and the second book, Historical Baggage: The Book, Healing History. This research and data wasnt a job, it was an obsessive following of
many paths that eventually had a personal application. The results
of my work, changed my life, set me free as a woman, as a person. I
may share some archaeology or some linguistics, but the reason is
because that information is transformational. I have been healed,
strengthened, empowered by a long lineage of ancient womens
cultures. I saw a quote by a Zuni student many years ago - "When the
legends die, dreams die also. And when dreams die, there is no
greatness. And when there is not greatness, who will suffer the
most? Well, I will tell you, the people. The people who dont know
their own shadows, and cannot see their visions clearly. And the
ones who dont know themselves pretty well. But someday when you stop
and think, you'll see the real image of yourself and the ones that
were before you and then you'll see." That is how I feel about the
work I do, revealing the ancient women so that we can see our real
My passions include the natural side of life. I am an herbalist, outstanding cook and permaculture gardener, researching and implementing sustainable living practices. I am driven to learn ancient skills, so I spin, weave, sew; work with gourds and basketry; wood and metal work. I am also a member and volunteer for the Gallatin Wildlife Association in Bozeman, MT.
Oh, I almost forgot, I prefer notations right where the quote is (I hate having to reference the bottom of the page and worse, the end of a chapter or back of a book for notes). I rarely use apostrophes, they irk me. Not apologizing.
