Leadership in Public Arenas

In both politics and religion, men occupy the highest rungs of authority. The king and his officers are men, as are the heads of residential courts, shrine priests, and ritual specialists. However, women also participate in public debate and are listened to; they do not hesitate to speak out on subjects that are important to them. They also participate in selecting the successors of deceased headmen. A large number of women are diviners, though the most prestigious ones are men.

Older women are often seen as repositories of genealogies and knowledge of past events.
