Peaceful Societies

You can call them "Segmentary Societies" like Emile Durkheim, "Regulated Anarchies" like Max Weber, "Peaceful Societies" like on the Website mentioned below or "Matriarchy", like German Scholars define it (not to confuse with Bachofen, goddess movement or FemDom). It all is the same kind of society with the same patterns.

Description of Matriarchy

To make it clear right away: There is no "complete matriarchal people" known today. Every so called matriarchal society lost more or less of their typical life style under patriarchal influence; so this description will be “fictional" and somewhat theoretical. Even though it matches reality, the characteristics listed below cannot be experienced by travelling to one ethnical community or tribe.

Breastfeeding: Being Loved and Being Touched

Today I found in the paper an example of how patriarchy makes people suppressing their sexual feelings, especially children. Read how kids become traumatized by the White Christian American society, not understandable even for Europeans, who also live in a patriarchal system:

No More Ms Nice Person

Too often I hear experienced businesswomen putting forward the idea that the best quality women bring to business is our nurturing ability, and it makes my blood boil. Worse still is when this 'pearl' has the usual 'be assertive not aggressive' rule tagged onto it. Does anyone really believe that the individuals advocating this blah got to the top by cuddling competitors, playing coochie-coo with a disgruntled colleague or by soothing a grazed ego with an Elastoplast and a kiss?

I like the best definition of matriarchy as "nonviolent society". Is that precisely enough?
It is precise - think about it. If there is no violence at all, no physical violence, no violence in language, no violence to children (includes the violent education to obedience), no emotional violence by keeping back attention or tenderness, no violence to animals, humans or nature, no violence to oneself, like eating like crazy, abuse of drugs, alcohol ... and and and, you name it. Then there is matriarchal health. Precisely.

 
Land Tenure and Use in Native American Culture
Native Americans believe they are closely linked with the land and everything that grows on the land or lives on the land. Because of this belief, the idea of "owning" land did not exist among the Native Americans. They lived off the land, but did not consider that they owned it.

Are the Basques matriarchal people?

Today the Basques are as matriarchal as every community in Europe: not very much (matriarchal = matrilineal + matrilocal). Nevertheless you will find here matriarchal elements, like in all European societies. You can follow the traces in religion (Christianity in most of Europe), the folklore, tales and legends, habits and traditions, especially at festivals.

Though, the Basques are speaking their own non-indoeuropean language, which means, the cultural influence from the patriarchal Kurgan Culture had less influence on them as on other European peoples, i.e. the Greeks or Celts or Germans.
