Award of the Tower's Foundation

Awarded to Ute von Munchen (modernly known as Barb Waddington Ross)

By the Barony of Cynnabar on 2017-10-14

In the days of toil and of sacrifice,
she disregarded her own life.
In the days of leaders and of being led,
she drove to advance.
Wielding a pointed stick of juniper,
she dug up wild onions and garlic
with which to nourish our gullets day and night.
Our mother reared her fortunate children
until they became rulers and lawgivers.
They grew up to be good people.
They became powerful and brave.
They said among themselves,
“Let us support our mother.”

Thus do We, Kasha and Ermenrich, with the support of all the
people, declare that Ute von Munchen shall receive Our Award
of the Tower’s Foundation.

Let none countermand Our words.
Based on an excerpt from Mongγol-un niγuča tobčiyan [The Secret History of the Mongols],
written by an anonymous author in Mongolia sometime between 1227-1241.
