In those tribes that were engaged in agriculture (and almost all Indian tribes in varying degrees, they were engaged), it is women who cultivated the land and cared for plantings. The only exception is the Pueblo Indians south-west - their men engaged in agriculture since ancient times. In all other places, as in most places on the planet, these concerns since time immemorial lay on the shoulders of women. In the end, the woman herself is the prototype of the land - the source of life in her womb matures and bears fruit in and out of the darkness into the light. The ancient peoples of the woman firmly associated with the land, their mission was considered very similar. A woman is working in the field, located near the house, and watched the home, a man engaged in no less time-consuming - hunting.
