Max Dashu speaks with Joanna about: Staff-women, the vo?lur; the oldest texts about female spiritual leadership in Europe; a window into the ancestral heritages of North: nine worlds in the Tree, the nine primordial women in Nature; a common cosmology from Siberia to Scandinavia; the first primordial seeress mentioned in the Völuspá; theories about the Vanir, A?lfar, ethnicity, and conquest; “the first war in the world” between the Aesir and the Vanir, one of the core themes in the Völuspá; the demonization of the other and divide-and-conquer, the tools of patriarchy through history; strong parallels between the Norse and Vedic stories; the nectar of wisdom, the mead of poetry; the hopeful ending of the Völuspá; ancestral recovery work for the people of European descent.
