A 5-year ethnographic study of the Lesbian Culture built at the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival.

The Michigan Womyn's Music Festival: An Amazon Matrix of Meaning by Laurie J. Kendall, Ph.D

This study explores the construction of an Amazon consciousness and its manifestation in symbol, myth, and ritual performance at the Festival.

It also explores the ways womyn build homes, families, and sacred traditions during the Festival.

Quote from the Michigan Women’s Music Festival:

“Have you ever wondered what it would be like if women ran the world?

Imagine a town conceived, planned, structured and operated entirely by womyn.

Imagine a diverse community with a sweeping range of age, ethnicity, ability and experience.

Now imagine that it’s a vacation town –

Imagine children free to play in the summer sun and womyn wandering moonlit woods and meadows without fear.

A concert town – a town filled with multi-dimensional performances, powered by creativity and collective inspiration.

It’s a town planned for you, inviting you to create and participate, to discuss and discover, to work and play together, and to explore your inner limits and outer wilds.

MichFest town focuses on the riches of all things female, with strong underpinnings of the radical, the risky and the fierce.

First conceived in the hot feminist politics of the mid-70s, consciously developed through four decades of female

ingenuity, feminist process, queer sensibility and dyke vision, the Festival has become an enduring and beloved incarnation of women’s imagination and spirit.

Come to the Land. Take a trip to your wildest dreams.”
