Lady Xoc circa 709 CE
Art by Attempted Artistry (tumblr)
Lady Xoc was queen consort of Yaxchilan and one of the most powerful women in Mayan history. She was the principal wife (and aunt!) of King Itzamnaaj B’alam II who ruled Yaxchilan from 681 to 742 CE.
Three carvings of Lady Xoc adorn Structure 23 in Yaxchilan. They are unique among ancient Mayan carvings for their depiction of a woman participating in a ritual sacrifice. In the lintel that inspired the artwork above, Lady Xoc is shown drawing a thorny rope through her pierced tongue. In Mayan culture, blood sacrifices were used by kings to seek help from the Gods and departed ancestors. As kings were known to have made these blood sacrifices and Lady Xoc is the only Mayan woman documented to have done the same, some take this image as a sign that she may have ruled as regent in addition to serving as queen consort.

"Soon, moreover, I was told, ‘This is your little ax,’ when a little ax was brought. I was glad. ‘This is your wood-strap,’ I was told. My mother and I would go out to cut wood; and I carried the little wood that I had cut on my back. She would strap them for me. She instructed me how to tie them up. Soon I began to go a little ways off by myself to cut wood.
"And when I was eleven years old I likewise continually watched her as she would make bags. ‘Well you try to make one,’ she said to me. She braided up one little bag for me. She instructed me how to make it. Sure enough, I nearly learned how to make it, but I made it very badly. I was again told ‘You make another.’ It was somewhat larger. And soon I knew how to make it very well… She would be very proud after I had learned to make anything. ‘There, you will make things for yourself after you care for yourself. That is why I constrain you to make anything, not to treat you meanly. I let you do things so that you may make something. If you happen to know how to make everything when you no longer see me, you will not have a hard time in any way.’"
—Autobiography of a Fox Woman (1925)
Today we’re combining Women’s History Wednesday with Native American Heritage Month to feature these images of Iowa’s Mesquakie tribe, from the Iowa Women’s Archives Noble Collection, along with a published autobiography excerpt held by the State Historical Society of Iowa.
From their home in the Great Lakes region, the Mesquakie (formerly known as the Fox tribe) relocated to Iowa during the 18th and early 19th century following warfare against French fur traders and other Native American tribes. In 1845, the U.S. Government forced them out of Iowa to a reservation in Kansas, but many tribe members remained in secret, and others returned after a few years. The Iowa legislature enacted a law in 1856 allowing them to stay, and sold them back some of their land. Today the Mesquakie own 3,000 acres. [source]
Frolicking in the autumn leaves, this little lion cub is having the time of her life as she excitedly plays in her enclosure.
Tiny cub Karis proved she’s not too dissimilar to human children as she threw herself into the pile of golden leaves carefully collected by her keepers, even ending up with a pile on her head.
Staff at the Blair Drummond Safari Park, near Stirling, Scotland, had been raking up the leaves to keep the attraction tidy, when Karis’s keeper Brian Reid realised that his little charge might enjoy playing in them and moved the pile into her enclosure.
