Clara Sue Kidwell discusses the roles of women in various Native American societies. She belies the stereotype of Native American women as subservient to men and describes how tribal society was egalitarian. Women did the farming and foraging that supplied 50% of the food supply. Female deities were highly revered and critical figures in the origin stories of many Native American tribes.
