Abstract

This paper is designed to give an overview of the Indigenous peoples and recognize the different gender roles that each member follows. The paper will compare and contrast the gender roles among males and females to see the differences and similarities within in several different Native American Tribes; for instance, the Cherokee and various other Indian tribes. The paper will outline the roles each member plays within a household. For instance, the role of the male, female, kids, older relatives, etc. This will help to outline the notion of who is the head of the household and which gender carries on most of the power within the household. Understanding indigenous peoples and their roles is important for the study of indigenous communities. In addition, this study explores how the United States gender roles are different and similar to the indigenous peoples. Mixed anthropological methodologies were employed for this research. The goal of this research paper is to determine how similar and/or different the indigenous peoples' gender roles are from the United States society.
