The Krewe of Isis

Isis was the mother of Horus and the sister and wife of Osiris in the mythology of ancient Egypt. She was honored as the goddess of the earth and the moon, a symbol of motherhood and fertility.
Isis was also worshiped in the Greek and Roman empires. She was traditionally represented as a woman wearing a cow's horns with a solar disk between them.


In 1973 this all-female organization was charted in the city of Kenner, and the women held their first 7 processions there before adopting the standardized veterans Memorial Boulevard parade route, which more than a dozen Jefferson krewes share.

About the DVD
The first Mardi Gras in America was celebrated in Mobile, Alabama in 1703. In 2007, it is still racially segregated. Filmmaker Margaret Brown (Be Here to Love Me: A Film About Townes Van Zandt), herself a daughter of Mobile, escorts us into the parallel hearts of the city s two carnivals. With unprecedented access, she traces the exotic world of secret mystic societies and centuries-old traditions and pageantry; diamond-encrusted crowns, voluminous, hand-sewn gowns, surreal masks and enormous paper mache floats. Against this opulent backdrop, she uncovers a tangled web of historical violence and power dynamics, elusive forces that keep this hallowed tradition organized along enduring color lines.
