Native American Indian Warriors




WARRIORS MARKED THEIR BODIES WITH SYMBOLS OF THEIR CLAN. SOME WORE SPECIAL BEADS OR METALS, MOST WORE FEATHERS AND ANIMAL SKINS, ALMOST ALL HAD TATOOES AND WORE ANIMALS' TAILS.
WHEN MEN MARRIED, THEIR CHILDREN TOOK THE CLAN NAME OF THEIR MOTHER, AND THE CHLDREN COULD NOT MARRY ANYONE OF THEIR CLAN.










Native American Indian Woman and Child







WOMEN AND CHLDREN WERE THE MOST IMPORTANT PEOPLE IN ANY VILLAGE. WHEN MEN MARRIED THEM, ALL LIVED IN THE HOME OF THE MOTHER. WOMEN USUALLY "STAYED PUT" IN THE VILLAGE THEY WERE BORN INTO, WHILE MEN WERE NOT ALLOWED TO MARRY WITHIN THEIR HOME CLAN. MEN TENDED TO MARRY WOMEN OF NEAR-BY CLANS AND "MOVE" THERE FOR LIFE.

NATIVE CHILDREN WERE TOUGHER THAN TODAY'S KIDS. THEY HAD TO SURVIVE HARSH LIVING CONDITIONS. THEIR LIVES WERE NEVER SHELTERED FROM DAY TO DAY REALITY. HUNTING, GARDENING, SICKNESS AND DEATH WERE JUST A PART OF THEIR LIVES.
