Description

In the Apache Native American Tradition, girls are ushered into womanhood through a four day ceremony called a "Sunrise ceremony", during which they dance, sing, pray, participate in sacred ceremonies, experience healing rituals, and undergo acts of physical exertion meant to strengthen their body and mind. It is during this ceremony that the girls are said to be spiritually obtaining the powers of the earliest Apache ancestor, the Changing Woman, also known as the White Painted Woman. The story goes that the Changing Woman survived a great flood of the earth in an abalone shell and to symbolize this important event and honor their great ancestor, Apache girls wear a disk of abalone on their forehead as part of the Sunrise ceremony.
