Parental and Other Caretaker Roles

Traditionally, when a woman gave birth she stayed with her relatives. The maternal grandmother played a major role in directing early care, although the infant was also tended, played with, and carried by a large circle of relatives. At the age of 2, care was transferred to a somewhat older child.

Care of children by older children freed adult women for participation in economic and political life.
