“Among the many tribes of Native Americans throughout North America there were many different roles for the Native American women. The roles of many Native American women were very important to every Indian tribe.” Native Net
Excerpt: Native American Women, Native Net
“Women are important to any society since they are the bearers of children, but to Native American tribes the women had many other very important responsibilities.
Among some American Indian tribes the women would make many of the weapons that were used for hunting and war, and also built the homes they lived in, gathered firewood, as well as herbs for medicine, and nuts and berries for food.
Native American women are the ones that made the crafts that have become very popular forms of art worldwide. Some of the crafts they are known most for are the hand woven and quilted blankets, colorful beaded necklaces, handmade and painted pottery.
No matter what tribe you are referring to, the women were always very important and had many different roles for the survival of the tribe.”
