Krewe of Artemis
Who Is Artemis?
The goddess Artemis played an intriguing role in mythology. She was known as the “Mistress of Animals” and the protector of children. Artemis, along with Orion, are known as the god and goddess of the hunt. Myths and legends say that Artemis was aloof and free-spirited. Myths also show Artemis as a strong willed and powerful female goddess.
Artemis was the daughter of Leto and Zeus, the ruler of the Greek gods. Together with her twin brother, she enjoyed the status and privileges of an Olympian. And as an Olympian goddess, Artemis was free to pursue her interests and was often found frolicking in the forests, accompanied by an band of nymphs.
Therefore, it is only befitting to honor this legendary goddess by naming the first and only all ladies parading Krewe in Baton Rouge….The Krewe of Artemis!
