About this Day
Why is this day being celebrated or observed?
Mothers of Civilization Day is a day to recognize and honor the first women on the planet, the original Black, and Indigenous women of the world. It is a day to be thankful for these women, regardless of their ethnic background. Many original women are from Africa, North America, South America, Asia, etc. These women have kept traditions alive, taught customs, and created beautiful cultures of pride.
Mothers of Civilization day is different from Mother’s Day because it honors the women who gave birth to humanity. The oldest bones ever found were found in Africa, the cradle of civilization. It honors Black, Indigenous, and other Women of Color for creating diverse cultures of customs and traditions. Too often, women are not valued unless they have children. This day helps us focus on the original women of different cultures who are aunts, sisters, and friends etc.
This day should be celebrated by the family and friends circling the women of their family with love and expressing their love and appreciation for them.
