Tribute to Tajikistani Women Leaders

Welcome to Tajikistan! Step through our doorway into this exotic part of the world.  

One of our master artisans, Munira Akilova of Tajikistan, produced this short video as a tribute to Tajikistani women leaders of the past and the present. Created as part of a business women's mentorship project in Tajikistan, current women business leaders dressed in traditional Tajik costumes to honor their culture and their traditional ways of life. The video was originally released on March 8, 2021, International Women's Day, which is widely celebrated in Central Asia.

The beginning of the video shows the photos of numerous Tajikistani women leaders from the past, from all walks of life. The speaker is reciting a poem in Tajik that is a tribute to women. The entire video is set to traditional Tajik folk music. We hope you enjoy this beautiful experience of the sights and sounds of Tajikistan. Munira graciously allowed us to share this video on HoonArts' platforms, to give a wider audience to this lovely introduction to traditional Tajik culture.

If you would like to learn more about the history and culture of Tajikistan, as well as the traditional textile arts, including Suzan embroidery, join us for one of our live Online Experience "Rescuing Art & Culture in Tajikistan," hosted on the AirBnB Platform.

Staving Off the Inner Bag Lady: Shifting from Risk Aversion to an Entrepreneurial Mindset

by Rikki Quintana February 10, 2022

If you're anything like me, talking about money is like talking about politics or religion--you avoid it if at all possible. for lots of different reasons.  I think that American outlook on money makes it really challenging for entrepreneurs like me who entered this world late in life.   Many of you know that I'm a "recovering attorney." I spent 31 years as a business lawyer. I chose law because I was risk averse with a capital "R." I didn't want the anxiety and risk of owning my own busines...
