Leisure Recreation and the Arts

It is difficult to quantify the amount of leisure time. It does appear, though, that females spent rather more time in physical labor than men. Boys spent much of their time playing with others of their age, while their sisters were under greater obligations to perform domestic chores. As they grew older, males would spend a significant amount of time in politicking, while their wives were out working in the gardens and forest. Much of what leisure time they had, women passed in visiting and chatting with other female relatives and in playing with children. Men, too, socialized with kin and friends. Both sexes passed time in storytelling, singing, and dancing, though it is difficult to gauge whether one sex did more than the other. Beyond a top-spinning game that men played at harvest time, there were no adult games or sports.
