“Ceremony of the Stew-Pot” / A Memorable Fancy #362

[“The pottery of the Mohicas is their language.” – Eliot Weinberger]

     This ancient Mohicanian custom commences with the man’s buying a stew-pot and giving it to the woman, saying “You will marry me and gather food for me and sew my garments and cook my meals and raise my babies.” In tribal tradition, the woman can then accept the pot, meaning “yes.” Or she can sell it back to the man, freeing him to look for a different slave.
