Mother Serpent Earrings
Welcome to our Lost Tribe collection, a celebration of ancestral cultures and traditions.
Serpents have always played an important role in ancestral traditions. For some Native Americans such as the Hopi or the Pueblo, they are associated with fertility. The Hopi used to perform ritual serpent dances every year to make sure crops will be fruitful and nature be fertile.
Snakes have also been part of Australian Aboriginal Creation stories with the Rainbow Serpent seen, by many tribes, as the source of life, protector of people and the land and also symbol of fertility.
Egyptians also believed the creation of Earth and all life was symbolised with a curled-up snake (according to the New Zealand Maori people, a similar coil symbol, seen in nature with the Baby Fern is called the "Koru") where the god creator Ra (Sun) was born from.
