Mourning Dove
Discipline and Sharing
printer friendly version
Children were encouraged to develop strict discipline and a
high regard for sharing. When a girl picked her first berries
and dug her first roots, they were given away to an elder
so she would share her future success. When a child carried
water for the home, an elder would give compliments,
pretending to taste meat in water carried by a boy or
berries in that of a girl. The child was encouraged not to be
lazy and to grow straight like a sapling.
