Because long ago, a happen-to-be-female ancestor of Itzel proved her valor in saving the tribe from a terrible entity that threatened their existence. Believing her to be something divine, the tribe followed her and her line unquestionably. The line happened to consist of females, and each one that takes rule of the tribe, first proves their ability to protect, uphold, and lead the tribe in the feats originally mentions in Itzels concept-lore.
